• Multi-Level Prevention Pyramid

    Georgia’s Tiered System of Supports of Students uses a three-tiered prevention model to describe the intensity of supports students may require to meet their unique, whole child needs. As pictured in the graphic above, this multi-level prevention system includes high-quality core instruction and the use of evidence-based interventions and supports that may be intensified if data suggests this is required. Students receive instruction based on their needs, which may differ across time.  When strategically provided tiered supports, it is expected that the majority of students should be able to achieve mastery of grade-appropriate Georgia Performance Standards.  

    This framework:

    • improves response times and helps educators rapidly respond to student needs, and
    • aligns teams, helping to streamline information and resources necessary to improve student learning.
