How MSAT works:

A concerned teacher, adult, or student refers a student who is having difficulty to the student assistance team.

One of the team’s members is assigned to collect information from teachers and other school personnel about the student and interviews the student personally.

For an initial referral, the student assistance team consisting of the student’s guidance counselor, teachers, interventionist, and assistance principal meets to review the information, consider options, and work towards a resolution.

The MSAT monthly team consisting of the principal, assistant principal, school psychologist, school social worker, guidance counselors, math interventionist, and literacy interventionist meet to discuss ongoing student concerns that need a higher level of support.
