Intervention and Referral Services (I&RS)

The Intervention & Referral Services Committee (I&RS) is a multidisciplinary team, which may include any of the following: the principal, parents/guardians, teachers, nurse, a member of the Child Study Team, and other school personnel.  The I&RS Committee discusses and recommends additional strategies which can be utilized in the classroom and at home. Green Brook Township Public Schools follows the New Jersey Tiered System of Support (NJTSS) approach which utilizes a Response to Intervention (RtI) model.  

How does a student get referred?

Faculty members use many strategies to help students improve their academic performance.  When a student experiences significant academic and behavioral difficulties, a teacher or parent may refer the student to the school’s Intervention and Referral Services (I&RS) Committee.

Please note that Green Brook uses a variety of vetted and approved resources, management systems, and screening tools to provide intervention services and track student performance.  Anyone who has an educational or parental responsibility for a child can make a referral to the Intervention and Referral Services team in either I.E.F. Elementary School or Green Brook Middle School by notifying the Principal in writing.
