Curriculum Planning and Assessment: Adjustments and Supports


Multi-tiered Systems of Support

Multi-tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) provides schools with a framework for allocating educational services to students with varying academic, social-emotional and behavioural skills. A foundational principle of MTSS is that all students benefit from instruction in an inclusive whole school setting incorporating evidence- based teaching strategies. This is referred to as universal support,  or tier one. There are some students for whom this universal support is not sufficient. These students receive targeted, tier 2 support with supplementary intervention. Individual students who require more than the universal and targeted support receive intensive, individualised, tier 3 intervention.

Adjustments and Supports

Adjustments are measures or actions taken to assist the student with a disability to participate in education or training on the same basis as other students. They are determined on a case by case basis in consultation with the student through the Collaborative Planning Process. Adjustments can be provided for students in Kindergarten to Year 12, across many aspects of the curriculum and school life. This may include the environment, extra-curricular and social activities, instructional practices, assessment, reporting and resourcing.

Supporting Students with Additional Needs in Stage 6

In this webinar, we discuss the flexibility and supports available for students in Stage 6, particularly in Year 12 to meet the requirements to gain their HSC credential.
