Many schools have implemented academic response to intervention (RTI) and schoolwide positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS) as separate initiatives. This book provides keys to making these programs more effective, seamless, efficient, and sustainable by combining them into a single multi tiered system of support (MTSS).

Steps and strategies are outlined for integrating data structures, practices, teams, and district systems. Contributing authors present detailed case examples of successful MTSS implementation in three states.

In a large size format with lay flat binding, the book features reproducible checklists and evaluation tools. Purchasers get access to a companion website where they can download and print the reproducible materials plus other helpful resources

"A 'must read' for those interested in learning how to construct, implement, evaluate, and sustain integrated three-tiered models of prevention. McIntosh and Goodman have produced an easy-to-access guide for developing data-driven systems to meet students academic and behavioral needs, including very practical information on systematic screening efforts."
- Kathleen Lynne Lane, PhD, BCBA-D, Department of Special Education, University of Kansas

"If you want to improve the impact of your academic and behavioral strategies for all your students, then follow McIntosh and Goodman's expert guidance on using the MTSS framework and logic. This book does a superb job of addressing the 'why, ' 'what, ' 'how, ' 'when, ' and 'where' of aligning and integrating leadership teaming, data-based decision making, explicit academic and behavior instruction, universal screening, continuous progress monitoring, and evaluation and coaching. And, it provides the empirical support, self-assessments, and applied examples for making MTSS contextually relevant and doable for you and your students."

"The publication of this volume has been eagerly awaited. McIntosh and Goodman provide the most comprehensive lens to date for integrating academic and behavior systems of support. They clearly articulate the critical features and attributes that support implementation and sustainability of an MTSS at both the district and building levels. The authors have succeeded in writing a very reader-friendly book, complete with practical examples and tools for moving teams at all stages of implementation forward. This is an essential practitioner s handbook and should be required reading for all preservice educators."
