Student Study Teams



The Governing Board encourages the collaboration of parents/guardians, teachers, resource personnel, administrators and students in evaluating the strengths and needs of students having academic, attendance or behavioral difficulties and in identifying strategies and programs that may assist the students. The Superintendent or designee shall establish student study teams as needed to address individual students' needs.

The Superintendent or designee shall establish a process for initiating referrals of students to the student study team.

Each student study team shall develop intervention strategies to assist the student. Such strategies may include changes in program placement or instructional methods, recommendation of supplemental educational services, parent involvement strategies, behavioral interventions, discipline, referrals to other agencies or resources, and/or other appropriate interventions.

The student study team shall monitor the student's progress, evaluate the extent to which the recommended strategies have been implemented, and develop additional interventions as needed.
