The Student Behavioral Support Systems Department coordinates student disciplinary concerns and provide services to campus administration regarding appropriate student behavior and discipline. The department provides a systemic approach with more comprehensive ways to utilize systems, data, and practices to improve student academic and behavioral outcomes.
The department is also responsible for coordinating and publishing the Student Code of Conduct (SCOC), a uniform guide regarding behavioral expectations, misbehaviors, and a continuum of disciplinary corrective actions including alternatives to suspensions for all students in all grades of the school district. The SCOC is designed to promote an orderly, safe, and well-managed environment so that every student may receive a quality education.
The department works in collaboration with the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) department and focuses on four critical areas:
- Student Behavior Support Practices: systems of student support that include proactive strategies for teaching, defining and supporting social emotional learning
- Staff Behavior Support Practices: durable systems to support positive school climate while enhancing a professional learning environment
- Discipline Data Systems Practices: data collection systems designed to identify status, need for change, and effects of behavioral interventions
- Decision Making Practices: utilization of a problem-solving model to develop and implement evidence-based behavioral interventions and strategies
