I&RST Mission Statement
The mission of Hackensack High School’s Intervention and Referral Service Team (I&RST) is to make a positive difference in the lives of HHS students through a professionally supported collaboration of the I&RST, staff, student, and parents/guardians. Through this collaboration the committee will be assisting students in achieving their highest potential. The functions of the I&RST are to identify learning, behavior and health difficulties. I&RST will provide to staff, students, and parents interventions, follow up meetings, and resources thus providing a more inclusive, collaborative school environment.
The I&RST takes into consideration not only what is it about the student that is causing performance discrepancy but what is it about the interaction of the curriculum, instruction and learning environment that should be altered so that students learn.
