Student Support Team

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.
