Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP)

Why should I do it?

  • Provides more intensive intervention and monitoring
  • Increases support around student
  • Provides an individualized plan for success
  • Addresses specific issues in a specific manner
  • Involves teachers, support staff, the student, and parents actively
  • Helps teachers to address behaviors and issues consistently across subjects, rooms, sessions, etc

When should I do it?

  • When students exhibit consistent and significant behavior problems that interfere with their learning and/or others in the class
  • When students demonstrate significant emotional difficulties that interfere with learning and/or others, including frustration, anxiety, depression, fear, etc
  • When students demonstrate significant difficulties with organization, motivation, work completion, etc
  • When you have parents that cause children to be consistently late, tardy, or who don’t help or enforce homework routines, etc
  • When students demonstrate any other significant and consistent issues that affect their school experience and learning
  • When students’ parents cause the student any other significant and consistent issues in school or related to school, like academic support, reinforcing good behaviors, etc

How do I do it?

  • Use one or more of the “Data Tracking Forms” below to track information on the student’s behaviors, like frequency, degree, time, patterns, antecedents and consequence, etc
  • After tracking the behaviors, you may or may not choose to perform a Functional Behavior assessment, which takes the behavior data and helps you to analyze it and decide on why the student may be engaging in the behavior
  • After tracking and analyzing the behaviors function, utilize one of the behavior plan forms below to create a plan as to which specific behaviors you will address and what specific interventions and class supports you will provide to address the behaviors. Included in the plan should be a component as to what is expected of the teacher, student, and parent
  • Meet with the student, teachers, parent, and support staff to review the behavior plan, giving copies to everyone and having everyone sign the plan
  • Implement the behavior plan for 2-4 weeks, using a data tracking tool below to track progress, and then meet with the team again (student, teachers, parents, support staff) to review progress and make any necessary changes
  • Regular reviews of the students progress and adjustments to the plan should occur about every month
