The Behavior Disorder Unit
 

 

The BD unit is very unique in that it provides a special environment for students to receive extra one on one help with their assignments as well emotional and behavior support. For some students who make use of the Unit, it is their main classroom.

Those who are placed in the BD Unit as per their ARD and Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP) are given the opportunity to work their way out from the unit back to the regular classes.

 

HOW THE UNIT WORKS

 

The Unit uses a Point and Level System to evaluate, assess, and determine each student’s readiness to be mainstreamed.

 

The point sheet is used to monitor and document daily progress in such areas as:

·        Following District, School, and Classroom Rules

·        Attendance

·        Number of times out of seat

·        Disruption of class

·        Completing assignments

·        Use of inappropriate language

·        Aggressiveness

-         verbal aggression

-         physical aggression
