A Support Team is a team of school personnel that provides behavioral, social, emotional, academic, and attendance support for a designated student. The primary objective is to determine what resources are needed in order for a student to be successful in the learning environment. A student referred for Support Team intervention is not necessarily being referred for exceptional education. However, this team may function as an intermediate step between recognition of a problem and formal referral of the student for a comprehensive evaluation, at which time, special education procedures begin.
