Multi-Tiered Systems of Supports Program (MTSS)

MTSS Toano Matrix MTSS Parent Letter – October    /    MTSS Toano Matrix

October 14, 2015

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Toano Middle School is committed to helping all children thrive by promoting a positive learning community.  As part of our commitment, this school year we are joining other WJCC schools to build upon our success and implement the Multi-Tiered Systems of Supports (MTSS) Program.

The Multi-Tiered Systems of Supports Program is a way of providing instruction and support to promote academic and social success of all children.  The goal is to be proactive and intervene early to foster the school’s mission.

For further information reference the website below

A key component of the MTSS system is the use of consistent positive rewards to celebrate students’ successes.  Students who are consistently following the characteristics of the P.R.I.D.E. Matrix are reinforced with Tiger Tokens. The matrix is listed on the back of this letter.

Rewards using tokens include:

  • P.R.I.D.E. Events (quarterly)
  • Drawings for various incentives (weekly)
  • Token “purchases” in the P.R.I.D.E Store

We look forward to collaborating with you and appreciate any feedback concerning this initiative. This program will be fully implemented over a course of two-three years under the guidance of our site-based MTSS Team.

On behalf of the TMS Staff,

Ms. Tracey Jones, Principal                                                                        Michael Hurley, Assistant Principal
