Intervention & Referral Services Team (I&RS)

The Intervention & Referral Services (I&RS) Team at MIS is a problem-solving group established to assist teachers with strategies to help students who are experiencing learning and/or behavior problems within the classroom. The team is composed of staff members from around the building who represent different areas of expertise and educational experiences.  

 

When a student is reviewed at an I&RS meeting, the student’s teacher briefly describes the reason they are asking for help, strategies that have been tried are identified and then members brainstorm alternative strategies to help. A plan is put in place and a time line is established for implementing the recommendations and observing their effectiveness
