Student Supports & Interventions

Student supports and interventions are offered for any child that is struggling academically, behaviorally, or emotionally, whether they need a temporary plan or permanent plan to ensure their academic and/or emotional success. Supports can include:

  • English Language Acquisition (ELA) groups
  • Literacy intervention groups
  • Math intervention groups
  • Social-emotional skill building individual and group interventions

If students continue to struggle after receiving interventions for at least 6 weeks, the school may invite the parent or guardian in for a Student Intervention Team (SIT) meeting. This team is made up of teachers, support staff, and parents, and the purpose is to problem-solve and determine the best ways to support the student at school. This process is referred to as Response to Intervention (RTI) which is part of a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) model. Additional supports may be accessed in this model by students with disabilities through an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or a Section 504 Plan.

For more information about this process or model, please contact the office to get you in touch with one of our support staff members.


Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS)

PBIS is an approach that Cory uses to improve school safety and promote positive behavior. It’s also a way to decide how to respond to a child who misbehaves.

PBIS has a few important principles:

  • Every child can learn proper behavior.
  • Stepping in early can prevent more serious behavior problems.
  • Each child is different thus Cory provides many kinds of behavior support.
  • How Cory teaches behavior is based on research and science.
  • Following a child’s behavioral progress is important.
  • Cory gathers and uses data to make decisions about behavior problems.
