14.2.1 Preliminary Procedures and Documentation
22.214.171.124 Classroom Support Log
As soon as a student has an ongoing need for support in the classroom (whether identified by the student, parents/guardians, and/or teacher), the
teacher should begin keeping a record of classroom strategies and supports he or she has implemented to help the child, and concurrently work with the parents/guardians and notify the administrator. Using the
Classroom Support Log, the
teacher should record the date, note strategies attempted, note the results or effect of each strategy, and keep a record of parent/guardian communications. If the student shows progress after the teacher implements the strategy, the
teacher should continue the support as needed.
