Student Support Team
The Student Support Team (SST), comprised of the Principal, Counselor and Learning Specialist, assists students with academic and social-emotional needs. Using a holistic approach, the SST gathers information from teachers, parents, observations, interviews, reviews of school records and assessments in order to develop interventions and strategies that will improve a student’s learning and social well being. The SST creates an individual student learning plan and shares the plan and the student’s progress with teachers and parents.
Our learning specialists support students in the mainstream classroom and through individual or small group instruction. Their interventions focus on reading, writing and math remediation and developing learning strategies that can be applied inside and outside the classroom. When appropriate, the SST can refer families to outside professionals and support specialists that work in the community.
The SST’s goal is to work as a team with teachers, students and families to ensure that students have the necessary support to become independent, lifelong learners that achieve their full potential.
