  • I&RST Mission Statement



    The mission of Hackensack High School’s Intervention and Referral Service Team (I&RST) is to make a positive difference in the lives of  HHS Students primarily through a professionally supported collaboration of the I&RST, staff, student, and parents/ guardians.  Through this collaboration the committee will be assisting students in achieving their highest potential as they grow to become confident, caring, competent, and successful academic and social individuals.  I&RST will provide to staff, student and parents, training, interventions, follow up meetings, and resources.  The I&RST is a state mandated general education initiative that will work to reduce Child Study Team referrals.  This will be achieved by meeting with staff, students, and parents and implementing team driven interventions.
