Questions and Answers

How can I refer my students?

This year you can fill out the referral form on the S3 link under Staff on our webpage.

How can we ensure more follow ups with the teacher?

This year, after a student if referred, we plan to work closely with the teacher. We would like to increase communication and follow up. When a student is referred we will meet as a team and make a decision on what we believe is best for that student. The team will then work with the teacher. A teacher should hear something from a within 2 weeks of a referral. If not, then please let Mrs. Cocklin know. Also this year we will keep a running log of when an S³ member meets with the teacher.

What is the difference between S³ and RTI and behavioral write ups?

is a way that teachers and staff can refer students for any concerns that they might have. This may be from self esteem, family/home concerns, bullying, hygiene, absences, and so forth.

Behavior write ups are for students that need immediate repercussions for their actions and are handled by Mrs. Baker. Repeated behavior write ups can lead to a referral.

RTI works with referrals to help form behavior plans and to better serve the students. Response to Intervention (RTI) is a multi-tiered model designed to combine assessment and intervention to maximize student behavior. With RTI, schools identify students who may be at risk for learning or behavior difficulties and monitor progress.
