What is the I&RS process?
1) The I&RS process begins upon a referral from the MTSS team.
2) The I&RS process is in no way a disciplinary process.
3) All information obtained in the process is strictly confidential.
4) The I&RS process can be a preliminary step toward an evaluation by the Child Study Team.
A teacher or guidance counselor may refer students to the team for any of the following reasons: academic, behavioral, or social emotional concerns.

The I&RS process begins when the MTSS team reviews relevant data and makes a recommendation for Tier III interventions.
The I&RS team will gather information about the student’s academic or behavioral progress, previous and current test scores, and classroom behavior. The team will meet to discuss the student and develop a preliminary plan of action based on the information.
A parent meeting with the I&RS team and the student is arranged. At that meeting, the I&RS team draws up a plan of action with the input of all parties involved.
The I&RS team will meet periodically to monitor the student’s progress.
Goals of I&RS:
  • To develop strategies to help the student improve their academic standing.
  • To help the student adapt to the high school environment.
  • To examine potential disparities between the student’s class placement and their academic ability.
  • To determine if a child study team evaluation is needed.
  • To share successful strategies with the student’s teachers.
