ALL REFERRALS for special education (except Speech & Language) are to be made through the Student Study Team. The Student Study Team provides support for a teacher with students who are experiencing academic, social, or emotional difficulty. Any teacher or specialist may refer a student. Parents should request an SST in collaboration with the classroom teacher and/or specialist.

    The Student Intervention Team may recommend modifications in the existing program, additional interventions and/or strategies, or referral for additional services. The team shall consist of the principal or designee, classroom teacher, special education teacher and additional members as available or necessary. These additional members may include the nurse, psychologist, Resource Specialist, SLH Specialist, collaborating teachers, and/or counselor.

    Staff members should identify students for SST referral prior to the end of January, unless a student is enrolled at a later time.
