Effective October 6, 2020, the new home for the Virginia Tiered Systems of Supports (VTSS) is "vtss-ric.vcu.edu." We have moved onto a different platform and seized the opportunity to make some structural changes as well, including adding overviews to the "Implementers" and "Professional Learning" home pages. Please change any bookmarks to the new URL.
It was our intent to make this site more user-friendly and streamlined. So, send us a line or comment on our Twitter account (at the bottom of this page) to let us know how we did!
Who we are
The Virginia Tiered Systems of Supports aligns academics, behavior, and social-emotional wellness into a single decision-making framework to establish the supports needed for schools to be effective learning environments for all students. We partner with school divisions throughout the Commonwealth to support the successful implementation of the framework.
COVID-19 Resources From VDOE
On March 13, 2020, Governor Ralph Northam extended his order that all public and private K-12 schools in Virginia close in response to the continued spread of COVID-19 for the remainder of the school year. The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) has been working closely with the Governor’s Office, the Virginia Department of Health, and other state agencies to ensure our public schools and communities have the most up-to-date information and resources. The health and safety of our children and staff are our top priorities. Visit COVID-19 & Virginia Public Schools and Frequently Asked Questions for the latest information. Resources and information are being updated frequently.
As a part of the VDOE, Virginia Tiered Systems of Supports (VTSS) recognizes the unique needs of VTSS school divisions. We are pleased to provide resources that can help to support staff, students, community, and families. Please remember that you can reach out to your systems coach if you have specific needs or questions.
