What are the tiers?

Tier 1
All children receive high quality curriculum and instruction in the general education classroom or program.

Tier 2
The school or program provides help for children who need more support than they are receiving from the general curriculum.  This support usually occurs in a small group pull-out setting with specific goals set for each child.

Tier 3
The school or program provides more individualized instruction for children who need the most support.  This support usually occurs more frequently in either a small group or individual pull-out setting with specific goals set for each child.
