Our Center

Welcome to Michigan’s MTSS Technical Assistance Center, previously Michigan's Integrated Behavior and Learning Support Initiative (MIBLSI).

The MiMTSS Technical Assistance Center works on behalf of the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) to provide a continuum of technical assistance to ISDs, districts, and schools in a Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) framework.

"A Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) is a comprehensive framework comprised of a collection of research-based strategies designed to meet the individual needs and assets of the whole child at all achievement levels. MTSS intentionally interconnects the education, health, and human service systems in support of learners, schools, centers, and community outcomes. The five essential components of MTSS are inter-related and complementary. Implementation of the essential components as intended provides educational settings with a framework to organize the strategies and processes needed to eliminate barriers to learning and support successful learner outcomes." (MDE MTSS Practice Profile, p.5).

Please access the MDE MTSS Practice Profile for additional information.

Our mission is to improve outcomes for all learners by assisting educators in developing infrastructures to support high-quality and sustained implementation of effective, data-driven practices within a Multi-Tiered System of Supports framework.
