When a parent, educator or other specialist expresses a concern about a student's educational and/or developmental progress, the schools' Student Assistance Team (SAT) meets to develop problem solving and intervention strategies to be implemented for the students to be successful in the school setting. Parents are participants in the SAT process and they are informed of the interventions to be used. If these strategies do not adequately meet the needs of the students, a referral for a multidisciplinary evaluation may be made:
The MDT Report information is used to develop present levels of performance for the Individual Educational Program (IEP). These educational needs determine the most appropriate program in which to implement the IEP.
