The Intensive Support Team (IST) is designed to serve schools in supporting students with intensive needs. IST is comprised of staff members representing a cross section of teachers, student services staff, and administrators. Team members bring expertise in significant disabilities, trauma, behavior, mental health, autism, and community resources. The primary goal of IST is to increase responsiveness to schools, improve access to community resources, and support school capacity in responding to students with intensive needs.
