Welcome to the Behavior Intervention Team Website
IF THIS IS AN EMERGENCY, CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY!
This form is for non-emergency situations and for documentation after 911 has been called.
This Behavior Intervention Report Form is to be used by any San Juan College employee who encounters a student whose behavior
interferes with academic instruction and/or is perceived as a safety concern to students, staff or property.
What is the Behavior Intervention Team?
The San Juan College Behavior Intervention Team (BIT) has been created to provide caring, preventive, early intervention with students whose behavior is disruptive
or concerning. The Behavior Intervention Team is an interdisciplinary committee of College officials who meet biweekly and as needed.
A few of the core purposes of the BIT include these:
- Educate the campus community about behaviors of concern and reporting procedures.
- Provide consultation and support to students, faculty, staff, and administration in assisting individuals who display concerning or disruptive behaviors.
- Serve as the central point of contact for reporting behavior that deviates from an established baseline
- Triage reports - identifying patterns of aberrant behaviours which might suggest the need for an intervention.
- Assess level of threat and level of risk.
- Follow a formalized protocol of instructions for communication, coordination, and intervention.
- Assess long-term success of interventions.
To help the faculty and staff in dealing with students who appear distressed, several protocols or guidelines have been developed.
