Student Study Team

 

Student Study Teams comprised of the classroom teacher, former teachers, teacher specialists and parents convene regularly to identify intervention strategies to promote student success. Working as a team, the parents, teachers and school administrator identify the student strengths and assets and use those to design an improvement plan. Response to Intervention  (RTI)  can have several levels, Tier 1 classroom interventions, Tier 2 small group work with a teacher specialist and Tier 3 individual support with a teacher specialist. Concerns are seen as obstacles to success and not descriptors of the child or his motivation or character. Student Study Teams are part of general education. Once strategies and improvement plans are identified, the team determines a follow up schedule to monitor student progress.
