Instructional Support Team Resources

Role of the Instructional Support Team
The Instructional Support Team (IST) is a systematic, intervention, planning process for students who are at risk due to learning, behavioral, and/or social difficulties.  The primary goal is to identify a student's instructional needs and to provide specific supports within the regular education classroom necessary for school success.  

The instructional support teacher instructs the teaching teams with identifying the students need for support, determining the strategies needed to assist the student, implementing the strategies through a continuum of services, and providing the support for staff, students, and their families with implementing the interventions.
