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.

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.

  • Social-Emotional Behavioral Screening

    Posted on: June 9, 2021

    Michigan's MTSS Technical Assistance Center is continuously working to improve the professional learning and assistance it provides to support the implementation of a Multi-Tiered System of Support aimed at ensuring equitable and effective outcomes for all students. The combined impact of physical, mental, and economic stressors of COVID-19, as well as the health toll of racism on communities of color, underscores a great need for addressing the social-emotional-behavioral and academic needs of all students.

    The document "Reframing a Screening Process to Promote Safe and Inclusive Learning Environments that Support Each and Every Learner" focuses on components to support the whole child while working to create effective environments that are positive, safe, equitable, and inclusive. This document is intended to provide general information and creates a foundation for future guidance that will include more details on how to implement these recommendations along with examples and tools.

  • Intensifying Literacy Instruction: Essential Practices

    Posted on: February 10, 2021

    MDE and the MiMTSS Technical Assistance Center are pleased to announce the release of the document, "Intensifying Literacy Instruction: Essential Practices!" This document focuses on the advanced tiers of an MTSS framework (Tiers 2 and 3); however, it can and should impact Tier 1, class-wide instruction since an effective Tier 1 instruction supports all learners regardless of their pressing needs. This document describes five practices and considerations for understanding how students' learning and behavior are enhanced.

    The MiMTSS TA Center is pleased to offer a limited number of copies of this document through the Kalamazoo Regional Education Service Agency (KRESA) Print Center. These copies must be ordered by a school, district, or ISD. There is a minimum order of 10 copies and a maximum order of 25 copies. The free copies are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please use the Intensifying Literacy Instruction: Essential Practices order form to place your order. If you have any questions, please email
