SSTs are Student Support Teams that are designed to help students who are struggling in school.
An SST is made up of the student’s teachers, the student’s parents, and the school’s guidance counselor.
The team meets to discuss the student’s progress and come up with a plan to help the student succeed.

What is an SST?
SST is an acronym for “Student Support Team”. An SST is a team of educators that work together to support students with academic, behavioral, and/or social emotional needs. The purpose of an SST is to help students be successful in school.
What is the purpose of an SST?
Schools use SSTs to identify students who may need additional support in the classroom. The process begins when a teacher, parent, or student raises a concern about a student’s academic performance or behavior.
The school gathers information about the student’s strengths and needs through an SST meeting. This information is used to develop an individualized education plan (IEP) for the student.
Who is involved in an SST?
An SST or Student Support Team is a group of people who work together to help a struggling student succeed in school. The team includes the student’s teachers, the school counselor, the principal, and sometimes the student’s parents. The team meets regularly to talk about the student’s progress and figure out ways to help the student do better in school.
The SST Process
The SST process is a three-step procedure that is used to help struggling students in the classroom. The process begins with a screening test, which is used to identify students who are struggling. Once students have been identified, they are given a comprehensive test, which is used to diagnose the specific skills that the student is struggling with. Finally, the student is given a targeted intervention, which is designed to help the student improve in the specific skills that he or she is struggling with.
The SST meeting
The SST meeting is where the school team meets with the parent to:
-Share information about the student
-Gather information from the parent
-Determine what, if any, changes need to be made to the student’s current educational program
The SST report
The Student Support Team (SST) is a multi-disciplinary team of educators that provides support to students who may be struggling academically, socially, and/or emotionally. The team meets regularly to discuss students of concern and develop individualized plans to help those students succeed.
The SST process begins when a teacher, counselor, administrator, or other staff member identifies a student who might benefit from some additional support. The student’s name is then added to the SST agenda for the next meeting. At the meeting, team members share what they know about the student and brainstorm possible solutions. The team then develops an individualized plan for the student, which may include such things as additional academic support, social skills training, and/or behavioral interventions.
The SST report is a document that summarizes the team’s discussion and lists the specific support services that have been recommended for the student. The report is shared with the student’s parents or guardians so that they can be aware of the resources that are available to help their child succeed.
If your school district has recently undergone an SST process, you may be wondering what happens next. Once the SST team has gathered all of the necessary information, they will make recommendations to the district administrators. These recommendations may include changes to district policies, procedures, or staffing.
The SST review
The SST review is a meeting between the school staff, parents, and the student to discuss the student’s progress and needs. The purpose of the meeting is to develop an individualized education plan (IEP) for the student.
The SST exit conference
The purpose of the SST exit conference is to review the team’s findings and recommendations with the school’s administration. The team will present its report, which will include a summary of the student’s strengths and needs, as well as recommendations for addressing the areas of concern. The school’s administration will then have an opportunity to ask questions and offer input.
