A student suspected of having an educational disability is referred to the MTSS at his/her school. Interventions are identified and implemented to assist the student’s academic, behavioral, and social/emotional needs. Parents are notified when students are referred to the team. Parents are involved in the Tier 3 process. Please consult the school for more details about this process. Link :
