TIER stands for Tiered Interventions Using Evidence-Based Research.  With the assistance of TEA, The Meadows Center and University of Texas in Austin, a clear vision has been developed to build capacity within every LEA in Texas to effectively implement the statewide models for MTSS. We do this through the creation of professional learning content and resources which are easily accessible to every LEA within the state of Texas.
