  • A Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA)

    is a team problem-solving process to help determine the reason why a student's behavior is impeding their learning or the learning of others.

    A Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP)

    is created based on the student's function of behavior as determined by the FBA. The plan includes interventions and supports in order to reduce behaviors that interfere with student's academic progress.

    Who would be eligible to have a FBA and BIP? 

    Any student who exhibits internalizing or externalizing behaviors that are interfering with their learning and the learning of others whether the student is a general education student, special education student or qualifies for a 504 plan

  • How is the need for an FBA-BIP determined?

    IEP or Tier 3 team would determine the need based on these indicators:
    • Student has had tier 1 and tier 2 interventions and data indicates that student has not learned replacement behavior or
    • Student's IEP goals in behavior are not being met and more information is necessary to identify the function of behavior or
    • Parent request or
    • Student is in crisis and may be physically aggressive or
    • EC student has been suspended and the conduct in question has been found to be a manifestation of the student's disability
  • Who is involved in the process?

    • Adults that teach the child
    • EC teacher
    • Someone with behavior expertise from the tier 3 team
    • Related service personnel who work with the child
    • Parent
    • School Psychologist
