SSPT

What is the Student Support and Progress Team (SSPT)?

Students are most successful where there is a strong spirit of cooperation between home and school. Based on our shared responsibility, the SSPT meets at school to explore possibilities and strategies that will best meet the educational needs of your child.

The Process:

Students are typically referred by the classroom teacher, but any member of the school staff may request support from the SSPT for a student whose learning, behavior or emotional needs are not being met under existing circumstances. Prior to the first formal SSPT meeting, teachers have met to review classroom modifications that enhance learning for students. A modification may be as simple as a change in seating location, a daily assignment sheet, or an increase in the use of visual teaching aids. Sometimes a simple change can make a big difference for a student.

If it determined that a SSPT meeting is necessary, parents will be notified.
