Community Schools Specialist (formerly COST Specialist)
COST MEETING CALENDAR
Weekly 9:00 a.m. Wednesday
Hi, Tyrrell family! My name is Heather Reyes and I'm the Community Schools Specialist (formerly COST Specialist) at Tyrrell Elementary.
I work to help maximize and expand available resources at our school and increase our school's capacity to respond quickly and appropriately to a wide range of student needs.
What is COST?
Coordination of Services Team (COST) is a multidisciplinary group of school staff and community partners who meet regularly to review referrals and discuss students’ strengths and supports needed. The team develops a plan for connecting the student/family to appropriate services, then monitors the success of service connection and interventions giving opportunity to tailor interventions over time.
