SST

Student Support Team (SST) is a collaborative problem-solving process utilized in each school. The purpose of SST is to identify and plan alternative instructional strategies for students experiencing academic, social, and/or behavioral difficulties prior to or in lieu of a referral to more restrictive programs.

The Student Support Team process is based on the child study team concept and is a valuable asset to all schools.  SST allows teachers and parents to take advantage of the collective expertise of a group of professionals and work collaboratively to develop a plan for addressing the diverse needs of students. SST is our best safety net for those children who, for academic, cognitive, behavioral, emotional, social, physical, or motivational reasons, are not performing adequately in school.

Contact your school's SST chairperson if you have questions regarding SST.
