The mission of the Behavior Intervention Program is to ensure that students are placed in the most appropriate setting, which is conducive to learning, maximizes academic achievement, growth and development.
The vision of the program is to ensure that all students are academically and socially successful. As such:
- Events that are flagged through the Elementary Level Discipline Matrix should be recommended for the Behavior Intervention Program through the Expulsion Abeyance Office 754 321-1670.
- Repeated PROMISE incidents should be referred to the Behavior Intervention Committee by completing the process outlined in the Behavior Intervention Handbook for traditional assignments.
Through the structures provided in this program, it is expected that students will acquire the necessary skills to enable them to optimally function in the traditional school setting.
