Focus on Learning Plans, Child Study Team Meetings (CST), and Student Support
If a teacher or parent has a concern regarding a student’s achievement, a Focus on Learning Plan is created by the classroom teacher based on assessment data and observations. A Child Study Team Meeting may be called if staff or parents feel that a child needs additional strategies in place to assure academic or behavior success. The team includes parents, the student’s teacher(s), the coordinator and/or principal, the Student Support Specialist, outside specialists (if applicable), and any other person whose feedback might be beneficial. The objective of the meeting is to gather information and develop an action plan to address the concerns.
The Student Support office has staff who support students and teachers. If a student is diagnosed with a learning disability, the Student Support Specialist may develop an Individual Learning Plan (IEP) for the student.
