Student Success Team (SST)

The Student Success Team (SST) is a problem-solving and coordinated approach that assists students, families, and teachers to seek positive solutions for maximizing student potential. It provides an opportunity for school staff, parents, community agencies and others important in the life of the student to present their concerns about the student. Through discussion and study, the team plans a positive course of action, assigns responsibilities, and monitors results over a period of time.

The philosophy of the SST process is based on the belief that the school, home, and community need to work together to assist the student with problems that become evident in the school setting. By bringing together these networks of support, successful intervention can occur. These networks of support, both within the school and the home, may serve to provide supportive and preventive measures necessary to serve the student in the general education program.
