MTSS Introduction for Families


Miss 9 Days or Less for School Success!

Starting in preschool and kindergarten, too many absences can cause children to fall behind in school. Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school—and themselves. Start building this habit early so children learn right away that going to school on time, every day is important.

How Parents Can Support Their Child’s Education

Open Communication with your Child’s Teacher 


  • Monitor classwork and assist with homework 
  • Share your child's successes and challenges
  • Attend Parent Teacher Conferences and other school events
  • Ask for help if you need it

Support your Child at Home


  • Read everyday! 
  • Talk to your child about their day. This increases opportunities for language development. 
  • Play games and interact with your child at increasing durations of time

Questions to Ask about how MTSS Works


  • What curriculum and standards are being taught in my child's classroom?
  • What targeted interventions are used if my child is struggling in the classroom?
  • What are the guidelines for progress monitoring?
  • How will I be informed of my child’s progress?
  • What if an intervention is not working?

Parents play an essential role in supporting their children’s education. Research shows that the more parents are involved in student learning, the higher the evidence of student achievement.
