Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS)
Stanhope School District takes a proactive approach to educating the whole child, with the mission of providing a diverse and challenging educational environment that encourages individual initiatives, fosters success through teamwork, promotes accountability, and demonstrates a passion for educational excellence. The Stanhope School District is committed to the development of our students so that individual aspirations can be achieved throughout their lifetime.
In accordance with the NJTSS - New Jersey Tiered System of Supports - the Stanhope School District is implementing a multi-tiered framework of academic and behavioral supports and interventions to improve student achievement. This framework builds on our Intervention & Referral Services (I&RS), Response to Intervention (RtI), and Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) to meet the academic, behavioral, health, enrichment, and social-emotional needs of all students. Stanhope School District uses various screening and progress monitoring tools to determine if students are meeting the standards and provides tiered interventions that are targeted to student needs. Progress monitoring and data-based decision-making by school-based problem-solving teams provide a continuum of support and interventions.
