Teacher Support Team (TST)
Parents who are concerned about their child's school progress are encouraged to initially contact the child's teacher. If needed, the classroom teacher will make a referral to the Teacher Support Team (TST).
The Teacher Support Team consists of multiple staff members from different disciplines including the principal, school psychologist, social worker, nurse, speech therapist, occupational therapist, physical therapist, and special and general education teachers. This team is able to review your child’s progress, brainstorm and determine appropriate interventions. Follow up meetings are set to review the progress that has been made.
If the Teacher Support Team determines that your child has not made appropriate progress with these interventions, a referral may be made to the Committee on Special Education.
