Lakeland Intermediate School and Lakeland School Corporation is part of Indiana Department of Education Pilot program for Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS). MTSS is a systemic, continuous-improvement framework in which data-based problem solving and decision-making is practiced across all levels of the educational system to support the students learning. The framework of MTSS is a “way of doing business,” which utilizes high quality evidence-based instruction, intervention, and assessment practices to ensure that every student receives the appropriate level of support to be successful.

A Multi-Tiered System of Supports helps schools organize resources through alignment of academic standards and behavioral expectations, implemented with fidelity and sustained over time, in order to enable every child to successfully reach his/her fullest potential. LIS administrators, counselors, grade level teachers, school psychologist, behavior interventionists, Title 1 interventionist, and more meet monthly to discuss the needs and progress of individual students and the supports that have been put in place for the student.
