Multitiered System of Supports for English Learners


Project ELITE2 was one of three research projects funded in September 2016 by the Office of Special Education Programs, and together, these projects make up a cohort for research on multitiered systems of support (MTSS) for English learners (ELs). Each research team developed a scope of work to improve the outcomes of ELs in the upper-elementary grades (grades 3–5), including ELs with or at risk for a learning disability, by implementing tiered approaches to meeting their language and literacy needs.
