Student Support Team
The Student Support Team (SST) is made up of the school administrators and teachers to address concerns about a student's academic achievement or behavior. The SST process is designed to assist parents and teachers in developing positive and effective interventions to address and improve student's learning or behavior at school. Assistance of the SST is sought when the teacher or parent has a concern about a student. Specific areas of concern are identified and information is gathered through observation, interview, reviews, and informal assessments. Strategies are suggested by the SST, including behavior contracts aimed at maintaining appropriate classroom behavior. The classroom teacher implements these strategies for several weeks and then reconvenes with the SST to discuss student progress. For a parent to initiate the Student Support Team Process, a referral form must be filled out and given to the child's teacher.
