Purpose: The purpose of this document is to provide educators (e.g., leadership teams, administrators, teachers, implementation support personnel) with information regarding the evolution and interrelatedness of Response to Intervention (RtI), Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS), and Colorado Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS). The content here reflects current thinking, distinctions between PBIS and RtI, and clarity around alignment of how the frameworks function under the MTSS umbrella in Colorado. As mutually supportive frameworks within an MTSS, RtI and PBIS are essential. This document describes elements of RtI (e.g., legislative expectations and effective practices), and PBIS that are embedded within MTSS.

Introduction

Purpose: The purpose of this document is to provide educators (e.g., leadership teams, administrators, teachers, implementation support personnel) with information regarding the evolution and interrelatedness of Response to Intervention (RtI), Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS), and Colorado Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS). The content here reflects current thinking, distinctions between PBIS and RtI, and clarity around alignment of how the frameworks function under the MTSS umbrella in Colorado. As mutually supportive frameworks within an MTSS, RtI and PBIS are essential. This document describes elements of RtI (e.g., legislative expectations and effective practices), and PBIS that are embedded within MTSS.

Format: This document has two sections. Section One provides information on the definitions, features, and components. Section Two provides information about the strategic concepts incorporated in the frameworks. Citations/publication dates are included to clarify adaptations that have been made over time.

Color Coding: The boxes highlighted in yellow represent the historical foundation of RtI and PBIS. The column highlighted in light blue demonstrates how CO-MTSS integrates and builds upon PBIS and RtI to establish a larger system of supports.
