5066 Student Assistance Team Process

5066 Student Assistance Team Process

Pursuant to the Rules of the Nebraska Department of Education, the school district uses general education student assistance teams (SATs).  SATs consider and create problem-solving and intervention strategies to assist classroom teachers to meet the needs of students who may be struggling in the general curriculum or who are struggling to comply with the student code of conduct or to meet acceptable behavioral and social norms.      

All teaching staff must:

  1. Support the SAT process by appropriately referring students who may benefit from the SAT process; and
  2. Faithfully and consistently implementing the intervention strategies recommended by the SAT.

The failure to support the SAT process is a serious matter and may constitute just cause for terminating or canceling a teacher’s employment.
