MTSS-B (Multi-Tiered Systems of Supports for Behavior)

Student Supports at Lincoln Public Schools

At Lincoln Southeast, we want all students to be successful. In order to ensure that students find success, Lincoln Public Schools has developed a framework of best practices for supporting student behavior throughout the school day. This framework includes evidence-based practices that we know lead to more positive outcomes for students. Some of the most powerful practices faculty and staff use include:

  • Developing and teaching all students our school and classroom expectations
  • Acknowledging positive behavior when we see it
  • Consistently practicing strategies that prevent problem behavior before it happens
  • Establishing consistent consequences
  • Using data to make decisions

Here at Lincoln Southeast, we are working especially hard during these first weeks of school to teach our expectations and acknowledge positive behavior when we see it. In this way, we know we are laying the foundation for a productive and positive school year.

LSE MTSS-B Update:

What are Tier 1, 2, and 3 MTSS-B Supports?  

Multi-Tiered Systems of Supports for Behavior (MTSS-B) supports all students in Lincoln Public Schools. Grounded in almost 40 years of research, MTSS-B is the only evidence-based practice and framework for supporting all students. MTSS-B has three tiers of academic and behavioral supports:

  • Tier 1 supports are for all students (100%). They assure that students are taught school expectations, that positive behavior is acknowledged, and corrective feedback is provided.
  • Tier 2 supports are for some students (about 20%). They provide students with additional instruction and practice on the school wide expectations. The Tier 2 supports intensify all of the teaching, acknowledgment, and feedback that occurs with Tier 1 supports.
  • Tier 3 supports are for a few students (about 5%). They are focused more on the individual student needs and intensify all previous supports provided in Tier 1 and 2.

These three tiers of support are reviewed by collaborative teams using data. This assures that the supports we put in place for students are working. Level 1 supports are constant and consistent. Level 2 and 3 supports are monitored to support students as long as they may need them.

Here at Southeast High School, we have all three tiers of support for students. We continue to teach our expectations and acknowledge positive behavior when we see it. In this way, we know we are supporting all students to learn the academic and behavior skills necessary for success in and out of school.
