NON-PUBLIC INSTRUCTIONAL SUPPORT TEAM (NP-IST)
NP-IST is a team approach to a problem-solving process that allows educators with special training to work together, in a partnership with parents, to help improve the school performance of their children.
The IST team is made up of the school’s principal, four faculty members who have gone through the IST training process, consultants from the Delaware County Intermediate Unit who are assigned to give services to our school (IU staff may include a school psychologist, counselor, remedial reading or math teacher and speech therapist) and the teacher and parents of the child being referred. In this way, the team, with different expertise, can address problems and come up with strategies for the teachers and parents to put in place. Monitoring of the child’s progress is done on an ongoing basis and strategies are adjusted accordingly.
