Grade level CLT's will meet every other Friday for 90 minutes. See the CLT schedule for meeting days and times.
SIT (Student Intervention Team) meetings will be held during teachers planning (or after school if needed) period on the second and fourth Monday of the month. The team consists of of an administrator, the guidance counselor, interventionists, the reading specialist (if needed) and classroom teacher(s). The purpose of the committee is to provide an in-house problem solving team whose purpose is to intervene, explore, and plan for possible avenues at the school level to utilize the knowledge and experience of those directly involved with the student. Please notify Ms. Humble to schedule a SIT. All teachers will use the SIT referral form on the File Maker Pro database after the meeting has been scheduled. Please indicate very specific skills and areas that the student is struggling in so that the team can bring intervention strategies and ideas to the meeting. Also, any student that has been retained will have a retention SIT meeting. Mrs. Humble will schedule those in the first month of school. Please see the separate SIT google calendar for dates and times of the meetings.
Child Study Meetings will take place on the first and third Mondays of the month. A Parent, teacher, or administrator may initiate a referral for the child study; however, students are to be referred through SIT prior to the child study meeting in most cases. The procedure for this;
1. Schedule a SIT with Ms. Humble.
2. SIT meeting is held.
3. If needed after the SIT, obtain a Child Study Referral form from our Case Manager/Jamie Reichelt
Email Ms. Reichelt if you have any questions regarding scheduling a Child Study Meeting.
