Intervention & Referral Services


Intervention & Referral Services (I&RS) is an interdisciplinary team of professionals within the school environment who come together throughout the school year to formulate coordinated services and team delivery systems to address the full range of student learning, behavior, social, and health problems in the general education program as well as for students determined to be in need of special education programs and services. According to N.J.A.C 6A:16-8.1,8.2 the goal of the committee is to see measurable student improvement in the identified targeted areas. Staff members refer students to the I&RS Committee through the building principal or school counselor. The I&RS Committee develops an Action Plan containing goals, interventions, and sometimes a timeline for the plan's duration.

The I&RS Committee follows a multidisciplinary approach with a well-articulated system of supportive activities and services for staff who have identified student difficulties and those who will be involved in the progress monitoring.

If you feel that your child is in need of intervention and referral services, please contact your child’s teacher and/or the building principal. You can also contact Dr. Crystal Marr, Director of Student Personnel Services.
