cost three major functions
COST-three major functions
  • Triage – the coordination, review and prioritization of student referrals for services based on available data and services.
  • Evaluation of Data – the careful review and examination of all data accompanying the student referral.
  • Case Management – the monitoring and follow-up attention provided to all cases referred to COST.
role of cost in the sst process
Role of COST in the SST Process
  • COST and SST are linked because COST serves as an overseer function (i.e., SST requests are routed through COST before a SST can be formally scheduled).
  • Once the SST process has begun on a student, COST continues to monitor the progress of the student until they exit, are referred for special education assessment, and are either found eligible for special education services or are referred back for additional SST services and/or interventions.
pre sst initiation process
Pre SST Initiation Process
  • Teacher identifies a student experiencing academic or behavioral difficulties in their class.
  • Teacher attempts to remediate difficulties normal teacher/student/parent contacts, interventions, and modifications.
pre sst initiation process1
Pre SST Initiation Process
  • Teacher look at students schedule.
  • Contact student’s other teachers about student.
    • It allows the referring teacher to examine if other teachers are having the same difficulties or successes with the same student;
    • It promulgates collaborative support regarding interventions for the student;
    • It allows further data collection for analysis of student need.

Schedule a teacher student OR parent conference.

    • Direct parent contact should be made
      • Not a TeleParent call
  • This gives us 2 pre-interventions before the SST process begins.
initiation of the sst process
Initiation of the SST process
  • The SST process will be initiated by a referring teacher.
  • Teacher will gather data on the referred student.
  • Data packet will be presented to the ORC in a pre-referral conference during the teacher’s prep period.

Before a student is referred to COST for an SST, the referring teacher will complete the Student Academic Profile form and meet with the Outreach Coordinator.
