Teachers and families working together
5. How can I address issues or problems?
If an issue arises don’t feel that you have to come up with the answers on your own.
If you have a concern about the student, discuss it with the parents. Find out how they address this issue at home and consult any other relevant people such as a Student Support Services Officer, therapist or previous teachers.
Concerns about the student’s program are best addressed by the Student Support Group. Concerns about other staff should be directed to the principal.
The Student Support Group should be informed of all serious or ongoing issues and adopt a problem solving approach together. If necessary, the Student Support Group can also consult with other specialists, or get advice and support from the DEECD Regional Office.
Refer back to the Individual Learning Plan, and any other relevant plans, to review what has been done previously. Make sure that these plans are revised to include any new decisions.
