Behavior Matters

News from your District Behavior Coach

What is the role of a Behavior Coach?

Behavior Coaches are Instructional Support Teacher. Coaches provide behavior support by conducting observations and making recommendations for behavior interventions, along with developing capacity at each school.

Behavior Coaches are available to meet with teams or individuals to provide specialized training, consultation, and assistance with classroom management and organizational skills.

In addition, Behavior Coaches work with the building staff to build a strong foundation of behavioral knowledge through a collaborative approach, assisting the team to individualized interventions, increase student success and address behavior concerns school-wide.

Behavior Coaches may also assist with monitoring of students who exhibit behavioral concerns. They may be involved in progress monitoring of student data, providing information, intervention and strategy suggestions for developing Functional Behavior Assessments (FBAs) and Behavior Intervention Plans (BIPs).
