The goal of the Math Interventionist is to assist students who have been identified as at- risk with math intervention to provide a continuum of support and help them get on grade level. The interventionist develops material and lesson plans, conducts classroom instruction and evaluates and assesses student performance. The interventionist meets with parents, interprets student progress, and informs parents/guardians about student strengths, weaknesses, and progress. Lastly, the interventionist collaborates with identified teachers who share the at-risk students served and develops a transition plan between the intervention classroom and the regular classroom
