Supporting At-Risk Students. A Creative Team Approach.
Scuccimarra, Dave; Woodbury, Eileen
The Student Support Team (SST) is a school-based interdisciplinary team designed to maximize the resources and support available to teachers, students, and parents. This presentation describes its approach and operation. The SST attempts early identification of students at risk for school failure due to any combination of poor academic performance, educational needs, and dysfunctional behaviors including the potentially self-destructive behaviors of alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use. The SST incorporates the functions of a number of programs such as screening, identification, crisis management, and student assistance. Members include an administrator, who usually acts as chairperson, pupil services staff, and representative teachers. The case management model that is developed is one of "request for assistance,""problem solving," and "intervention." Student performance outcome goals are to increase attendance, academic performance, and behavior that is appropriate to the learning environment, while decreasing suspensions, time-outs, and dropouts. Sample forms for use by an SST are attached. (Contains two figures.) (SLD)
