School Support Team Meetings

The School Support Team Meeting is designed to support the specialized needs of students throughout the school. This team structure provides the ongoing support to classroom teachers in regards to individual students and perhaps small groups. Administrators, inclusive education facilitators or learning support teachers, and counsellors typically make up the team partners. Ideally this team is meeting weekly or bi-weekly to engage in conversations regarding programming for students, school wide supports and referrals to district or external services.
