Intervention & Referral Services

I&RS (Intervention and Referral Sevices) Home page
 
The Intervention and Referral Service (I&RS) is a way in which educators collaborate to seek the best student learning style and teacher practices. Its focus is to align students’ learning with available resources in their classroom environment.
 
The I&RS Team Collaboratively:
  • Involves the development and implementation of the Individual Student Improvement Plan (ISIP)
  • Identifies students in need and then plans and provides interventions for those students within their classroom through Student Improvement Plan (ISIP)
  • Reviews and assesses the effectiveness of the services provided in the intervention of the ISIP
What happens at a meeting?
  • Meetings are held as needed
  • The I&RS Team meets with teachers and other staff members who have made a referral and requested assistance from the team
  • A new Individual Student Improvement Plan (ISIP) is created for new referrals; incorporating suggestions from teachers and staff
  • Students previously referred are discussed; progress or continued concern is noted; recommendations are made for changes, if any, to the existing ISIP
