At my school, Tier I is just normal instruction. If, after 6 weeks of Tier I, the kid needs more help, you move to Tier II interventions.

I know it is different even at schools within the same district. I would ask the SAT chair and Instructional Coach for advice.

MTSS is new to us. If I have a kid who has attention issues which is preventing him from doing his best and I want to start the process, what would that look like in my classroom to be considered tier 1?

TIA

I agree with Zia. I've worked in 3 different schools and the process has been vastly different in all of them. In my first school, tier 1 was classroom instruction but for "tier 1 interventions" the classroom teacher was still supposed to be doing something "different," even if it was small things like accommodations or just varying the way they structured small groups. Tier 2 and 3 both happened outside of the classroom and the difference between the two tiers was time and intensity.

In my current school, tier 1 is considered core instruction that every child gets. Anything different is considered tier 2, even if it's happening in the grade level classroom/done by the classroom teacher. It's not considered tier 3 unless the student is working with an interventionist/specialist outside of the classroom.

My second school was run by a nutcase P who told us that if we really cared about the kids we'd give up lunch, planning time, and before/after school time to do free tutoring . I certainly hope that's not the case anywhere else!

You need to ask your school team what your next steps should be.
