• What is a Student Support Team (SST)?

    • Problem-solving group of school staff in each building that
    addresses any problems that a student may have — academic,
    emotional, behavioral, attendance, etc.
    • SST Core Team made up of a school administrator, teacher, and an
    assigned support staff member (e.g. school nurse, psychologist or
    counselor)
    • Meets weekly to discuss the issues and problems of students and
    to preform as a resource for teachers to address concerns
    • Goal of the team is to assist teachers in the identification of
    appropriate, evidence-based interventions that will produce
    positive results for students as well as looking for group and
    school trends
    • Referrals can be made by any staff member, parent or agency
    • Referral for special education is not an automatic outcome of the
    SST process
