Character is doing the right thing when nobody's looking. There are too many people who think that the only thing that's right is to get by, and the only thing that's wrong is to get caught. ~J.C. Watts



Teachers, administrators, and other school personnel are currently faced with a multitude of issues in schools, one of the most challenging of which involves students whose behavior significantly interfere with ongoing classroom activities and ultimately with the learning that occurs therein. The interfering behaviors may vary substantially in terms of how they look, how often they occur, or how long they last, but some will inevitably lead to school-regulated disciplinary action. Students with serious behavioral issues and the behaviors these students demonstrate create a major challenge to the instructional goals of teachers.


Many students with behavioral problems are students with disabilities. These students may require behavior interventions, modifications, curriculum changes, and strategies development. In order to provide the above mentioned strategies, special educators and administrators must identify causes and function of behaviors, and develop a behavior improvement plan including positive behavior supports.


To address a wide range of significant issues related to student behavior, school-based personnel need to conduct an effective and efficient Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) and develop an appropriate Behavioral Intervention Plan (BIP) for students whose behavior interferes with their own learning, interferes with the learning of others, or violates school disciplinary codes.
