2. Tier 3 Readiness

Component Purpose

Each tier of a three-tiered approach, such as Schoolwide Positive Behavior Support, forms the foundation for the next level of implementation. When a school has implemented Tiers 1 and 2 with fidelity, the foundation is solid for developing successful systems, data, and practices at Tier 3. Therefore, when teams are determining readiness for Tier 3, the fidelity of Tier 1 and Tier 2 must be assessed.

This section describes the Tier 3 readiness indicators that MO SW-PBS has outlined as being critical for successful implementation of Tier 3. Without these readiness indicators in place, the Tier 3 system cannot be efficient and durable.

The resources on this page are intended to supplement MO SW-PBS regional Tier 3 training.
