Student Intervention Team (SIT)
The Student Intervention Team (SIT) is a collaborative, general education solution-generating team made up of a variety of school perspectives. The purpose of the SIT is to
- support teachers in reflecting on and enhancing their Tier I practices and
- implement targeted Tier II and III behavior and Tier III academic interventions when needed.
Utilizing an equity lens, the team considers the whole student when making decisions that affect their long-term educational experience and sense of belonging in PPS. SIT works to provide every student and adult what they need to thrive in the general education setting.

High School SIT Process Resources: A cross-departmental group of over 25 people contributed to the guidance below, including 18 different job titles. This guidance is our initial best thinking. Two high schools are field-testing the guidance and adjustments will be made as a result of their experience. If a school is not technically field-testing this guidance but has suggestions for enhancement, email Niki Johnson @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
