Welcome to the Multi-Tiered System of Supports!

  • In accordance with the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), the Nevada Legislature passed AB275 (2017) that formed the Nevada Integrated Student Supports (NISS). NISS is an equitable integrated Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS), a framework that builds systems for strong, effective, and sustainable implementation of evidence-based practices to ensure Nevada’s students receive the most impactful services, practices, and resources based upon responsiveness to effective instruction and intervention. (Nevada Department of Education, 2018, p. 8)
