Assistance Teams

Student Assistance Teams have been established to provide prevention and intervention services for students. Students are identified and referred to a team of professionals which may include a building administrator, classroom teachers, a special education teacher, a school nurse, a school psychologist, a school social worker and/or a school counselor.

The team discusses the academic and/or social-emotional needs of each referred student and creates an intervention plan to address those needs. These students may be experiencing difficulties in school due to peer interaction difficulties, adjustment problems within the school setting, substance abuse and/or family issues. Teams meet on a regular basis and welcome appropriate school concerns from parents or guardians and/or community agency personnel (with appropriate signed releases from parents or guardians). Student Assistance Teams help to build a caring school community within our schools which benefits students, parents and school staff.
