OTISS, the Oklahoma Tiered Intervention System of
Support, is Oklahoma's intervention model for identifying and addressing academic and behavioral difficulties that interfere with PreK-12 student success.
This model was developed, and is
currently supported, by the 2011 Oklahoma State Personnel Development Grant II (OK SPDG II), a grant to the Oklahoma State Department of Education from the U.S. Department of Education. OTISS's
primary goal is to improve student academic and behavioral outcomes using tiers of research-based interventions matched to the needs and levels of students.
Critical components of OTISS include:
Leadership, Teaming, Professional Development, Universal Screening/Benchmarking, Tiered Interventions, Progress Monitoring, Data-Based Decision Making, and Family Engagement.
The OTISS framework uses the
expertise of school professionals and parents in a proactive format that puts students' needs first and bases decisions on data.
The strength of the data collected in
the OTISS process allows for better decision making about which students need continued general education interventions, and which students may qualify for intensive special education
