A Student Study Team (SST), also called a Student Intervention Team, is just one way in which we guide and mentor your child as they navigate the more rigorous stages on their road to education. This meeting is different than a typical parent-teacher conference which focuses on improving communication and addressing specific class problems.
The purpose of forming an SST is to closely monitor an area in which your child may be struggling and ultimately enable them to overcome any academic, behavioral or social-emotional obstacles they are facing.
The Independence Charter Academy Student Study Team is often the first step a parent can take when they have a concern about their child’s progress in school. By providing a strong support system, a student study team will help students overcome difficulties in the classroom.
This support team is typically made up of you, your child, one teacher, one administrator, and other support personnel from ICA. Sometimes a special education teacher will also participate to give his or her perspective.
The underlying goal of an SST is to provide your child with a strong support system and facilitate an environment in which you, your child and ICA staff can work collaboratively, pinpointing any problem areas that may be inhibiting them from getting the most out of their education.
Our #1 goal is to set your student up for success. If you feel that your student would benefit from having their own Student Study Team, please reach out to your student's teacher to arrange a meeting.
