Montana, along with much of the nation, is moving toward using the term MTSS to include both RTI and Montana Behavioral Initiative (MBI) processes.

MTSS is defined as:

A comprehensive system of differentiated supports that includes evidence-based instruction, universal screening, progress monitoring, formative assessment, and research-based interventions matched to student needs, and educational decision making using student outcome data.
