Tier 3 – Behavior

David Douglas follows the PBIS system of supports in our schools to help students in making good choices.
1) Tier I: School-wide Expectations
  • Teach school-wide expectations. Reward with classroom & school-wide systems. Document problems with Minor/Major ODR. Communicate with parents.

2) Tier II: Yellow Zone

  • Ongoing/Disruptive Behavior. Student is discussed at the IPBIS Team. Individual supports are discussed and implemented.

3) Tier III: Red Zone

  • Dangerous, ongoing/resistant behavior. An FBA is developed & further discussion at the IPBIS Team. Additional supports are implemented.

Is there limited to no progress being made? If not, the IPBIS team makes a referral to the FBA school team to develop a FBA and assigns a lead (if the student is already special education, the case manager will be the lead of the FBA school team).

The FBA school team consists of:

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

The FBA school team meets to assign roles/duties.

  • The FBA team lead or case manager will obtain signed consent to conduct an FBA
  • How will observations be made and by whom?
  • Who completes the file review?
  • Who creates the data form(s)?
  • Who conducts the student interview? Who has the best relationship with the student?
  • Who conducts the parent interview? Who has the best relationship with the parent?
  • How will data be taken?

The FBA school team completes all the assigned tasks (one to two weeks) and reconvenes. The team completes the FACTS A, FACTS B, and the Competing Pathways/Behavior Support Plan. The team completes the Behavior Support Implementation Plan and the Evaluation Plan.

The plan is implemented and data is taken for two weeks. After 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 FBA, implement and take data for an additional two weeks.

If after two to three revisions of the FBA plan there is no progress, bring in district level support.
