The Pre-Referral Interventions page can be used to record details to help identify areas of difficulties students may be encountering. Identifying the student’s needs can help begin the development and implementation of education strategies for students who have recognized problems in the classroom.
The Pre-Referral can begin with the teacher and can then include the parents as well as other school staff involved in the education of the student with the intent of providing intervention that can assist the student in improving their performance.
The Pre-Referral page can be utilized by teachers to begin a pre-referral process. Teachers will only be able to edit their own pre-referral records. To use the Pre-Referral page, the Teacher Portal Group in Security will need permissions to the Pre-Referral Interventions (PRI) security area. Teachers can only refer the student to an intervention if they also have Insert permissions to Referrals to Intervention (RFI).
The Pre-Referral Interventions page can be accessed from the Navigation Tree by clicking the mouse on Student Data | Interventions | Pre-Referral Interventions.
