If you sponsor an after school club, please be sure to stay with the students until they leave. You are responsible for the students until they leave or are picked up by a parent/guardian.

Have a student who you are concerned about socially, emotionally, academically?

Below is the link the Google Form to schedule a "Pre-Referral Meeting". Prior to completing this form, be sure you have communicated your concerns with parents/guardians. Once you have completed this form, you will be contacted with a scheduled PST meeting time.

The "Pre-Referral Meeting" will consist of the classroom teacher, administration and the PST committee members. The purpose of this meeting is to brainstorm possible interventions and/or accommodations to support the Dolphins student. We will also determine appropriate data to collect in order to progress monitor and determine the effectiveness of the intervention.
