We need to stop asking if a student is responding and start asking if our current system is working for all of our students.

Keys to Success

Strong Tier 1 Core

Evidence-based practices for academic, social, emotional and behavioral support established for all students in preschool through graduation, providing a foundation of prevention.

Universal screening

Universal screening processes identify students who need additional support by measuring the fluency and accuracy of students’ critical early skills that are predictive of future skill attainment.


Evidence-based interventions are implemented to provide a layered continuum of supports matched to each student’s needs.

Progress monitoring

Progress monitoring data are used continuously to determine student response to intervention and are essential to determine next steps for fading, exiting or intensifying interventions for students.

Data-based Decisions

NeMTSS supports a problem-solving process to guide decision-making at all levels of support.

  • Inclusive of all students
  • Uses evidence-based practices
  • Effectiveness is based on both fidelity of the process and in the implementation of the instruction/intervention plan
  • Applies to all tiers of instruction/intervention and at all levels
  • Iterative process that may require multiple cycles to find solutions

NeMTSS is Continuous Improvement

Continuous improvement is not the job of one or two people, working in isolation, but rather unfolds progressively and implementation is driven by district, school and student-level teams that are dependent upon a common purpose and collaboration. The NeMTSS framework outlines specific skills and actions to organize, support, deliver and drive continuous improvement. The NeMTSS framework meets required continuous improvement regulations set forth in Section 009 of Nebraska’s Administrative Code, Rule 10, Accreditation of Schools and regulation 005.03 requiring accredited schools to have a student assistance process. NeMTSS provides districts, schools and educators with a structured approach to reaching goals they are already accountable for achieving.
