New Jersey Tiered Systems of Support (NJTSS)/Intervention and Referral Services (I&RS)

NJTS and I&RS

 

Each district board of education is required to establish and implement a coordinated system in each school building, in which general education students are served, for the planning and delivery of intervention and referral services also formerly known as I&RS, that are designed to:

 

1) Assist students who are experiencing learning, behavior or health difficulties; and

2) Assist staff who have difficulties in addressing students’ learning, behavior or health needs.

 

Each district board of education also must choose an appropriate multidisciplinary team approach for planning and delivering the intervention and referral services.
