Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS)
Bagley provides a multi-tiered system of supports to improve the outcomes of every student. MTSS is a prevention-based and problem-solving framework that strives to meet the academic and social needs of our students through school-wide supports and student specific interventions.
MTSS supports and interventions are team-driven and data-based. While all staff members are responsible for the implementation of intervention supports, some students may receive specific support from the reading and math specialist or head teacher.
The MTSS team meets weekly to review supports, interventions, and student progress. During this time, the team may meet as a Student Intervention Team (SIT) to discuss a specific student. The purpose of this team is to develop interventions and supports for students with academic or social skills concerns.
Parents of these children actively participate in developing appropriate interventions. Based on the effectiveness of the interventions and supports students may be recommended for evaluation by the school psychologist in order to receive special education services. Both teachers and parents can recommend students for evaluation by the SIT team.
Family Support Services
Support services include a school nurse offering vision and dental screenings and other health related assistance for all families.
An on-site speech and language therapist, a school psychologist, and an occupational therapist all work individually with students as needed.
We emphasize families helping families with programs such as food drives, a giving tree and holiday family support. And, most importantly, the principal, teachers and staff are friendly, easily accessible and work closely with families when needed to assure their children’s success.
