Intervention and Referral Services (I&RS)

If your child is having difficulty in school:

  • Keep an open line of communication with your child's teacher
  • Share your concern with your child's teacher
  • Monitor your child's progress on the completion of homework assignments
  • Discuss ideas or strategies with your child's teacher
  • If concerns still remain, you or the teacher may refer your child to the I&RS committee


I & RS:

The Intervention and Referral Services (I&RS) committee is a group of individuals who meet to review students who may be experiencing academic and/or behavioral difficulties in school. The I&RS committee is comprised of a Child Study Team Member, Principal, School Counselor, Classroom Teacher, the School Nurse, and the parent. The purpose of the I&RS committee is to discuss concerns regarding the student's achievement and determine interventions to facilitate learning. A plan is devised at this meeting and the student's progress is monitored. If the actions taken and resources used are not adequate and the problem still remains, the child’s needs may suggest referral to the Child Study Team.
