·         Building Leadership Team (BLT) uses Universal data to identify trends and communicate information to staff.

·         Problem Solving Team (PST) uses teacher provided data through the Problem Solving Referral Form to identify
           student needs and possible intervention strategies.

·         Child Service Team (CST) uses qualitative and quantitative data to plan for and respond to the needs of specific
