Mundelein High School's MTSS Framework
Tier 1 consists of the core curriculum and research-based instructional strategies provided within every classroom. Within any given class, a teacher must provide additional supports and monitor progress for any student whose grade falls into the D/F range. If a student continues to struggle despite these additional supports, the teacher must consult with the student's guidance counselor and the Department Chair.
If a student's academic performance does not improve, the teacher will then refer the student for Tier 2 supports. Tier 2 supports are delivered to groups of students who may need supplemental instruction and/or more structured social-emotional supports. The primary Tier 2 academic support at MHS is the Homeroom Academic Support Center (HASC). Within the HASC there are four centers: Social Studies, English, Math, and Science. One faculty member is assigned to facilitate each HASC in lieu of a Homeroom assignment for the year. In order to refer a student to the Center in one of these departments, contact the MTSS Team.
If Tier 1 and Tier 2 supports do not result in adequate improvement, then Tier 3 supports are initiated. These supports are individually designed and intensive in nature. In order to refer a student for Tier 3 interventions, please contact the student’s counselor. The counselor will then problem-solve with the MTSS Team.
