Behavior Committee

The primary purpose of this committee is to ensure that students and staff have the same understanding of behavior and that misbehavior incidents are noted in a way so as to provide consistently reported data for school improvement/MBI use. Committee is comprised of grade-level staff representatives as well as staff in direct instructional contact with students on a daily basis.

Talking points in developing behavior supports for students (Big 5)  -- Use data to determine:
How often are problem behaviors occurring?
Where are they happening?
What types of problem behaviors?
When are the problems occurring?
Who is contributing?





Five School-wide Practices of MBI
DEFINE School-wide expectations (PRIDE)
TEACH Direct instruction of behavioral expectations
REMIND Clear "in the moment" reminders
  • Daily recognition
  • Weekly/quarterly/grade-level/whole school celebrations
  • Classroom procedure for minor problem behaviors
  • Office discipline referral for major problem behaviors






Looking Ahead--future issues to address
  • Committee will meet to take another look at our teacher managed vs office managed behavior chart to determine whether adjustments are needed.
  • Pursue the SWIS training at MBI this summer so our recommendations and support systems will be data based and consistent.
