MTSS is a multi-tiered framework that promotes school improvement through engaging research-based academic and behavioral practices. NC MTSS employs a systems approach using data-driven problem solving to maximize growth for all.

The MTSS process in Transylvania County Schools is not complete without active parent/guardian engagement. TCS works hard to involve families in this process by:
- Engaging students and families that represent a diverse population of the school
- Engaging students and families in problem-solving when their children need additional supports
- Provide intensive outreach to unresponsive families
- Increase the skills of families to support student learning

If you child's teacher determines that your student needs supplemental (Tier2) or Intensive (Tier 3) for Academic or Behavioral support, you will be notified and involved in the improvement process. Here is a sample of the letter that will be sent home to parents/guardians.

Please note that a parent has the right to request, in writing, an evaluation for special education at any time. If the parent makes this request, the student must be referred to the IEP Team while interventions continue.
