Evaluation Tools & Procedures:
Student Success Plans
 are developed by a team consisting of parent, student,  teacher, IEP case manager, guidance counselor, an administration supervisor, and sending school case manager. A success plan is a contract for students who are at risk within their program of concentration. At risk may be due to poor attendance, several discipline referrals, or decreasing grades. The team will meet and discuss the top 3-5 areas of concern and how we can create a plan to improve these areas of concern to make the student successful within his/her program. Once the areas of concern are addressed, a list of interventions will be created to help the student improve these areas. If the student should not follow the contract and accept the interventions, the team has included a list of consequences that will follow the contract to the next level of an administration hearing. If the contract is followed by the student, a list of rewards is given defining the success that the student will be able to reach. (This is on NMTCC STU-040 form.)
