Student Study TeamTop of Page

A Student Study Team is in place at Sheridan School, as at all WPUSD school sites. This is a team which convenes to study and plan for students who have been referred for academic or behavioral challenges. 

The team consists of:
  • the principal
  • regular and special education teachers
  • parents
  • students (sometimes)

The team meets to discuss the nature of the concern and brainstorm strategies to address it. After modifications are made to the existing education program, a student may then be referred for special education services.
