Student Study Teams

The school nurse may be involved with the school's Student Study Team (SST) to provide any knowledge of a notable health problem/ issue that may affect attendance, classroom activities and academic performance. This input helps the team to make any appropriate observations, goals, and recommendations to help optimize an individual's learning experience.  Each school site sets up its own team with varying meeting dates and times.

The SST meeting is the first step in considering formal school accommodations (such as a 504 Plan).  The team receives input from a variety of sources close to the student (teachers, parents, school administrator, counselor, nurse) regarding interventions that have already been tried in the regular classroom setting to improve student success.  The team also considers further steps and agrees on a plan for future strategies.  In some cases an Individual School Health Plan (ISHP) or a 504 Plan may be written, or more educational assessments offered.  The team may also request more data, such as a release to exchange information with a physician, therapist or other outside professionals.

A 504 Plan should not be written by a nurse alone (even for a medical condition such as diabetes) without consultation with the team to discover specific information about how the health condition is affecting the student's ability to access the curriculum.  The team should also be involved in writing specific accommodations appropriate to the student's current needs and identifying school staff who will implement the accommodations.
