Behavior Management Plans

Addressing Problem Behavior in Education

For decades, problem behavior has been a constant issue for educators. Problem behavior, if not addressed appropriately, can disrupt the learning environment. Without proper interventions, students with problem behavior fall behind in academics and increase their chances of dropping out of school (DOE, 2018).

For students who act out on a consistent basis, a comprehensive behavior intervention plan can assist with decreasing unwanted behavior and increasing more desirable behavior. A behavior intervention plan (or BIP) is a formal, written document that teaches and rewards good behavior (Morin, A., Understood, 2024).

There are four key components of a comprehensive
Behavior Intervention Plan:

1 Operational Definition of Behavior: Clearly defining the problem behavior involves specifying observable actions, frequency, and context to provide a comprehensive understanding.

2 Identified Function of Behavior: Determining why the behavior occurs is essential. By identifying triggers and underlying motivations, educators can tailor interventions more effectively.

Strategies Aligned with Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA): Strategies must be aligned with the findings of the FBA, ensuring interventions directly address the root causes of the behavior.

Established Goal for Improvement: Setting clear, measurable goals is imperative. Goals should be specific, achievable, relevant, and time-bound, providing a roadmap for progress.

Insights to Behavior can help your district leverage technology to simplify the process for developing comprehensive BIPs. Insights to Behavior’s streamlined process includes an ABC framework for defining behavior, a quick behavior screener/FBA, a prescriptive library of over 200 evidence-based strategies, and tools to collect and report data to help drive informed decisions.

Through Insights’s intuitive platform, educators can efficiently navigate the process in under an hour, ensuring compliance with legal requirements while prioritizing the needs of their students. By streamlining the creation of behavior plans, Insights to Behavior enables educators to devote more time to implementing interventions and supporting student success.

A comprehensive BIP serves as a cornerstone for establishing a well-managed classroom environment primed for student success. By addressing problem behaviors systematically and promoting positive conduct, educators can create an atmosphere conducive to academic achievement and overall student well-being.
