INSTRUCTIONAL SUPPORT TEAMS

INSTRUCTIONAL SUPPORT TEAMS

The Blind Brook-Rye Public School District operates instructional Support Teams (IST) in each school building. The purpose of the IST is to redirect the district’s emphasis on the referral and classification of students who are not successfully meeting instructional requirements and/or behavioral expectations. The IST plans effective mainstream-based instructional strategies for students who are not attaining State standards and/or are having difficulties in mastering core content materials. The IST enhances the opportunities made available for all students to reach mastery level. The instructional Support Team model uses a collaborative approach to problem solving.
