Behavior Support

David Douglas follows the PBIS system of supports in our schools to help students in making good choices.

1) Tier I: Universal Supports

  • Teach school-wide expectations. Reinforced classroom & school-wide systems. Document problems with Minor/Major ODR. Teacher communicates with parents.

2) Tier II: Targeted Supports

  • Ongoing/Disruptive Behavior. Student is discussed at the IPBIS Team. Targeted supports are discussed and implemented. IPBIS team continues to monitor.

3) Tier III: Individualized Supports

  • Dangerous, ongoing behavior or student is not responding to targeted interventions. The FBA process is initiated to develop a function based support plan. IPBIS team continues to monitor.
This is the first part of the PBIS flow Chart

Examples of Targeted Intervention:

  • Movement group / Breaks 
  • CICO
  • Social Stories
  • Social skills Group
  • Video Modeling

The IPBIS school team consists of:

  • Principal/Vice Principal
  • School Behavior Specialist (SBS)
  • School Counselor
  • District Behavior Specialist
  • School Improvement Coordinator (SIC)
  • Student Services Coordinator
  • Mental Health or other providers
  • School Psychologist

An individualized team completes the FBA process. The team may consist of: 

  • Special education case manager
  • Administrator
  • Classroom teacher(s)
  • Others knowledgeable about the student.
  • School counselor
  • Student Behavior Specialist
  • District Behavior Specialist
  • Parent

The FBA school team completes the following assigned tasks (one to two weeks). The team completes the FACTS A, FACTS B, and the Competing Pathways/Behavior Support Plan  or Escalation Cycle. The plan is implemented and data is taken for one to two weeks. After one to two weeks the FBA school team lead will compile the data. If progress is being made, data is compiled every two weeks.

If progress is not being made, reconvene the team to revise the behavior plan, implement and take data for an additional one to two weeks.
