Tier III Team

The Tier III team process is one component of Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS). Tier I is grounded in effective teaching practices that are successful for most students. Tier II offers additional support for those students who struggle in some academic areas. Tier III offers more intensive and targeted support for students who may still be challenged despite quality teaching and intervention.

A Tier III team is a multi-disciplinary school team that serves to provide the necessary educational support to promote individual school success. Formerly referred to as Intervention Team, this team can address any academic or behavioral concern that significantly impacts academic performance. The Tier III team will develop and monitor changes in instruction which may prove to move the student towards the desired goal or target areas that may need further evaluation. Tier III Team meetings for the 2017-2019 school year will be held on Thursdays from 8:00-9:30. Please contact your grade level counselor for more details.

Teacher Referral

A teacher may refer a student to the Tier III Team after meeting with parents and completing Tier II interventions and progress monitoring.

Parent Referral

Parents may refer their child to the Tier III team for academic or behavior concerns by contacting the grade level counselor by e-mail or at 980-343-0689. Please note that Tier II interventions will still have to be implemented.
