To provide continuity and minimize disruptions of
IAT will be communicated to the parents at the initial
teacher conference, explaining the tier process and IAT.
This will be done prior to referral. Parents will be updated
after every meeting. CP will be cc’d on all communications.
1) Teachers refer struggling st. to the IAT
2) Teach completes the student concerns profile and parent
conference form, gathers work samples and submits to the
Chair Person (CP), who creates a folder.
3) Teacher makes an appointment with the CP to attend the
IAT meeting to discuss concerns
4) IAT provides support, recommendations, interventions
and assigns a tier.
5) IAT assigns a time to review (once interventions are in
place, approx. 4-6 weeks)
6) After 4-6 weeks, teacher returns to IAT (makes an
appointment with the CP) to report progress. New
recommendations may be generated, may continue on
same plan, may be exited or may be referred doe 504 or
7) At the beginning of each school year, CP meets with every
grade level and shares all tier folders with new teachers.
