Student Support Team Process – Pre-SpEd Referral Response to InterventionStep 1: Teacher assessment – teacher has observed, met with parent and recorded thatthe student is performing below grade to typically achieving peers. * This information may be brought to grade level meetings to identify under-achieving students. * This data is assessed and tracked, comparing it with typically achieving peers – Baseline Data - Probes and assessment forms should be utilized at this stage.Step 2: TIER I: Intervention plan is implemented for 6-8 weeks and an initial referral toSST is made. The SST/Mentor will be able to assist with interventions and/ or progressmonitoring before the initial SST meeting. Tier I interventions need to be in place before theinitial SST meeting, and may continue after the initial meeting to give the student time (6-8weeks) to respond to the Tier I intervention. Therefore, time is not lost waiting for a meetingto be scheduled.Step 3: Intervention plan is reviewed at SST meetings. The SST identifies target areasof weakness and creates interventions and goals for student progress. PROGRESS – goal is met and student is performing close/at level with same-age peers. OR No significant progress (student is performing below same age peers Move to Tier II, as per SSTStep 4: : Intervention Plan tracked and monitored by SST for 6-8 weeks. (TIER II –targeted intensive prevention or intervention services) Progress Monitor progress and then dropNo significant progress – Refer to the Committee of Special program if progressEducation TIER III continues at grade level
