What to expect at an SST Meeting

Problem-Solving Model:

The SST always starts with a discussion of a student’s strengths/assets, and develops solutions that build on these strengths.
The team  gathers background information regarding the student in the areas of school, home/family and health, and collaboratively brainstorming solutions to address areas of concern.


Service Coordination:
An action (Recommendations) plan is developed of interventions and supports designed to address students needs; team members are assigned responsibility for action items if necessary.


Monitor Results:
Action items are monitored and a follow -up SST meeting is scheduled if needed to review results/outcomes of interventions, make adjustments and continue to strategize positive solutions to ensure student success


Detailed notes are taken during the meeting and are kept on record at the school level. A copy is always sent home with the parent/guardian.


Tulita SST's are typically held on Wednesday mornings at 7:45 am by scheduled appointment.

What is an SST?

The Student Success Team (SST) is a problem solving and coordinating structure that assists students, families and teachers to seek positive solutions for maximizing student potential. The SST focuses in-depth on one student at a time, and invites the parent and student to participate in finding solutions. Additionally, at the elementary level, the SST provides a structure to review the academic, behavioral and health status of each student in a particular classroom. This process informs individual actions for students,including referral to the formal SST process, and class-wide actions to address issues such as use of class resources, behavior management,classroom modifications, and health education.


If you are concerned about your student, please contact your child's teacher directly and discuss the possibilities of an SST meeting. For more information about SST's, contact Dr. Farzad at tfarzad@rbusd.org
