Student Success

JTD’s dedicated and talented faculty is committed to providing an educational experience that meets each student’s needs through a variety of instructional strategies and approaches. In order to do this, faculty routinely partner with The Student Success Team.
The Student Success Team (SST) is a collaboration between the School Counselor, Student Success Teachers, School Nurse, and division heads. This team approach provides a forum for teachers to collaborate with specialists in order to share strategies, measure/monitor progress, set goals, and design support for students with distinct academic and/or social emotional strengths or needs.
