Any student who a classroom teacher has language concerns should be coded yellow or red in problem solving data. This should then be FIRST discussed in problem solving team. With this discussion, the classroom teacher will be given the language screener to complete and hand in. Menz and Rohlf review screener and make recommendations.
We've had some instances lately where language hasn't been brought up at all in problem solving team and suddenly in RED meetings we are talking language and either Kit or Lyndsay are called in at the last minute which causes them to miss groups.
Teachers should be aware that we shouldn't be looking at a student's language in a RED meeting if it hasn't been discussed, first, through PST. Unless, of course, it is at the parent's request. We notify Jane Bailey ahead of time if there is a language concern. When she is not notified, she knows it was not an issue discussed in problem solving.
