Positive Behavior Supports


The site provides schools and the district resources when it comes to meeting the behavioral and social/emotional needs of students with disabilities. School teams will find information about State Rules and Guidelines on appropriate procedures for conducting functional behavior assesments, determining and implementing behavior interventions, and considering a continuum of placements. 

Request Assistance

Once your school team has used the problem-solving process to address the problem behavior(s) of the student with a disability and has determined that a request for assistance from the District SpEd Behavior Intervention Team is warrented, please submit a request for assistance by cone site. 

Guidance on Parental Consent to Conduct Behavior Assessments/Observations

Under IDEA, school personnel must obtain written permission for an assessment or an evaluation of a child with a disability. If school peronnel determine that data should be collected, analyzed, and concludes that a student is in need of a FBA, parental consent is required before the information is collected (Technical Guidance from USOE obtained October, 20, 2015). Obtain parental consent when using the following forms:

Under IDEA, gathering data as a part of progress monitoring on IEP goals and/or assessments that students without disabilities participate in does not require parental permission. Consent to progress monitor on IEP goals is given when the parent signs the IEP. To facilitate the re-evaluation process and allow the IEP team to answer with confidence whether existing data are sufficient or not, the IEP team must consider current classroom-based, local (school/district), or State assessments, and classroom based observations (USBE SER, Nov 2013, p. 25). The following observation forms can be used to collect current data as a part of progress monitoring without obtaining parental permission:

Note: A BIP also requires that there be progress monitoring. Revising a current behavior intervention plan also can be done without parental consent; however, the parent should be notified.
