I&RS is an academic and behavioral support system present in each of the RPSD schools. The I&RS team works to identify and address behavioral, academic and health needs through a process outlined by the NJDOE. Referrals to the I&RS team might also come from parents/guardians, teachers, and other school staff members.
MTSS District Handbook
The district MTSS plan was developed based on guidance provided by NJDOE. NJTSS is a framework of supports and interventions to improve student achievement, based on the core components of Multi-Tiered Systems of Support and the three tier prevention logic of Response to Intervention (RTI). With a foundation of strong district and school leadership, a positive school culture and climate and family and community engagement, NJTSS builds on Intervention and Referral Services (I&RS) and gives schools structure to meet the academic, behavioral, health, enrichment and social/emotional needs of all students.
