Instructions for working on an intervention


The General tab houses basic information about the student and the intervention.

Assigned To:
This is the user currently assigned to the intervention. This user has full access to view and edit the entire intervention.

To assign a new user to the intervention, click the icon of the two people with the orange arrow, select a new user from the list and then click Assign.

Refer buttons
If the intervention should be handled within a more specific area, it can always be designated to that area. Click the Refer buttons — 504 / Health / ELL — to move the intervention that the specified area.

Student Information

The Student Information tab houses all of the biographical information about the student. All of this data should auto-populate when the intervention is created, but it can always be edited and/or updated.

This tab also lists all pre-referrals associated with the student. Keep in mind, this is all pre-referrals, not just the pre-referral that was submitted to create this intervention. Click any pre-referral listed to view its details and notes. This helps the I&RS team get a broader picture of the student.

Pre-Referral Ratings

The Pre-Referral Ratings tab houses the individual ratings for each Best Practice that were created during the pre-referral process.

During the pre-referral stage, a student will likely be rated on several best practices multiple times. This tab lays out all of those ratings.

Keep in mind that this is not every rating the student has ever received. These are ratings for only the pre-referral that was submitted to create this particular intervention.

Coordinator Tasks

The Coordinator Tasks tab is a list of recommended tasks that I&RS Team should complete for each intervention.

These tasks are completely optional. The I&RS Team is not obligated to complete any of the tasks.

A District Coordinator or the District Administrator may complete any task for any intervention. An I&RS Team Member may complete any of the Tasks if they are either assigned to the intervention or had been added to the intervention via the Add Staff to I&RS tab.


The Observation tab allows individual Observations to be assigned to teachers, parents, counselors, nurses — anyone with a HIBsterVention account.
To assign an Observation, click the green plus-button icon in the top-right corner. Select the type of Observation and a user to which the Observation should be assigned. To notify the user that an Observation has been assigned to them, click the green envelope next to the observation.

To compile a summary of all Observations, click the icon of the red folder in the top-right corner.

I&RS Plan

The I&RS Plan tab houses the Best Practices which will comprise the I&RS Plan for the student.

To assign a Best Practice, click the Create/Edit Plan button in the top-right corner. This allows the assigned user to add best practices to the plan.

Once a Best Practice has been added, the user can then rate the plan. The assigned user can also assign individual Best Practices to other members of the I&RS Team. If a user has already been added via the Add Staff to I&RS tab, that user will appear within the Best Practice. To assign the user to the Best Practice, simply check the box next to their name in the Best Practice.

There are also areas to add a SMART Goal and Additional Document text.

If this I&RS Plan has specific deadlines, those may be notated in the Start Date, End Date, Frequency and Duration fields.

Add Staff to I&RS

The Add Staff to I&RS tab allows the assigned users to add other members of the I&RS Team to the intervention.

To add a staff member, click the green plus-button icon in the top-right corner. Select the user from the list and then click the Save & Close button. To alert the user that they've been added to the intervention, click the green envelope next to their name.

If the same group of people always need to be added to an intervention, an I&RS Group can be created. Again, click the green plus-button icon on the top-right corner. In the new window, click the Edit Groups button. Give the group a name, click the green plus button to create the group, then add members to it. Now, instead of adding a single person to the intervention, a group of people can all be added at once.

I&RS Ratings

The I&RS Ratings tab houses a summary of every Best Practice rating for the entire intervention.

Rather than going to the I&RS Plan tab and clicking into every single Best Practice, the user can come to the I&RS Ratings tab to see all ratings laid out in list form.

Quick Check

The Quick Check tab shows whether a student has improved or declined in a handful of key areas since the start of the intervention.


The Documents tab houses all documents associated with the intervention.

System Documents
The System Documents area stores common documents needed on a regular basis, like letters sent home to parents or questionnaires.

Uploaded Documents
The Uploaded Documents area stores documents unique to the particular intervention, such as a homework assignment or a note from a teacher.

Case Notes

The Case Notes tab houses any Additional Information or Notes that come up during the investigation that do not have another natural landing spot in HIBsterVention.


The Audit tab houses the automatically generated records of everything done and saved in HIBsterVention. This allows a school district to know exactly what changes were made, when they were made and who made them.
