Graphic: How Students Receive Access to Supports Within a Tiered System
The following graphic provides a visual representation of how students might receive access to supports within a tiered system. This visual includes a brief description of Tier 1 universal supports.
These universal supports are included to illustrate a multi-tiered approach, highlighting the necessary foundational, proactive strategies aligned to the creation of a system that reflects the whole child. For the remainder of our discussion on tiered supports, we will be focusing on Tier 2 and Tier 3 levels of support.
We have organized and divided components of our approach in design of a tiered supports system into implementation phases:
- Assessing the Health of Your Tiered System of Supports
- Identification/Referral Phase
- Collaboration Phase
- Implementation Phase
- Progress Monitoring Phase
