The Student Support Team (SST) is a program whose goals are to maximize individual student success in the regular education classroom, while at the same time serving as a screening process for students who may be in need of special education services. SST is a positive, success-oriented program, which uses specific assessment and intervention techniques to help remove educational, behavioral, or affective stumbling blocks for all students.  

SST answers the question through a team approach that provides for greater cohesiveness, coordination, and instructional continuity, and compliments existing curriculum and instructional programs. Any elementary student who experiences consistent academic or behavior difficulties may be a candidate for SST.  

How does it work?

The SST process involves 4 steps:
  1. Identify a student's need for academic or behavioral support
  2. Determine the strategies needed to assist the student
  3. Implement research-based interventions through a continuum of services
  4. Progress monitor a student's growth based on the goals set for the student
