The Child Study Team (CST) is comprised of School Psychologists, School Social Workers and Learning Disability Teacher Consultants (LDT-Cs); at the Pre-School level, Speech and Language Specialist are also a part of the team.

There are CST members in each building. The primary role of a team member is to ensure the success of the students they case manage. To determine if a student is eligible for special education services and programs, identified students must be evaluated by one of the district's Child Study Teams. Before any testing may begin, the parents must meet with the Child Study Team to determine the educational needs of the student and provide consent. Initial Child Study Team evaluations may onclude a social history, a learning evaluation, and a psychological evaluation.

Other evaluations (neurological, psychiatric, speech, etc.) may also be appropriate. After the evaluations are complete, the results are shared with the parents. Parents must then agree to permit their child to be classified as eligible for special education and related services. A special education program may not commence for any child without initial parental consent for placement in a special education program. Individual Education Programs (IEPs) are formulated if a child is determined to be eligible for special education and related services. A Child Study Team case manager is assigned to each special education student and monitors the student's progress and the effectiveness of the Individual Education Program.

The IEP team, consisting of the parent, the student (if appropriate), general education teacher, special education teacher, and Child Study Team case manager meet for the annual review/ revision of the IEP. Students are required to be educated in the least restrictive environment to meet their educational needs.
