Intervention & Referral Services Team (I&RS)

The I & RS Team is a collaborative problem-solving group established to assist teachers with strategies to help students who are experiencing learning and/ or behavior problems within the school environment. The team is composed of school and district staff members who represent different areas of expertise and educational experiences.  When a student is reviewed at an I&RS meeting, the student’s teacher briefly describes the reason she is asking for assistance from the I&RS team. Strategies that have been tried to alleviate the problem are identified. Members then brainstorm alternative intervention techniques and new or additional approaches are agreed upon. A time line and review date is established for implementing the recommendations and observing their effectiveness.
