The "Pyramid of Interventions" approach includes being proactive and making interventions that encourage and support the student to be more successful in their learning and personal development.
In educational terms, any action taken to help a student be more successful in school may be considered an intervention. Interventions are not punishments. They are strategies to enhance learning, encourage good behavior, and minimize disruption. The South Davis Junior High Intervention Pyramid is designed to provide options to educators who feel a student may need assistance to be more successful. If improvements are not shown, a student's situation is reviewed by the Local Case Management Team (LCMT). This team is comprised of administrators, counselors, the school psychologist, classroom teachers, and a special education teacher.
Parents may not always be notified of minor, classroom-based interventions, but they will always be notified before major changes are made. Intervention success is a result of collaboration between the LCMT and the parents. If you would like to know more, please review our Pyramid of Intervention that is linked above, or contact the counseling center or administrators.
Listed below are a variety of community of resources that are available that many families of our students have found beneficial.
