Supporting Students with Intensive Needs

The goals of the Intensive Support Team (IST) are to engage in work that promotes racial equity & social justice, improve access to community resources, and support school capacity in responding to students with intensive needs.

IST and Building Bridges are comprised of staff members representing a cross section of teachers, student services staff, clinical coordinators, and administrators. Team members bring expertise in significant disabilities, trauma, behavior, mental health, autism, and community resources. IST and Building Bridges Staff Directory

The Intensive Support Team will maintain and utilize ongoing evaluation of data from a variety of sources in order to assess internal practices, identify trends to increase proactivity and responsiveness, and ultimately best serve schools.

We look forward to working with your team and engaging in work that promotes student success within the context of racial equity & social justice.
