PBIS Behavior Intervention Tiers


TIER 3


The third step is for students who continue to struggle despite Tier 2 interventions. Interventions are based on the student’s needs and may include: counseling, outside resources, restorative justice, social retraining, and other intensive supports as deemed necessary. This tier provides individualized support for High-Risk students, and they need to be monitored closely.




TIER 2


Second step intervention is for students who continue to struggle with behavior expectations. Interventions are based on the student’s needs and may include: counseling, check in-check out, restorative justice, and other supports as necessary. These interventions are designed for students with At-Risk behaviors. These students need to be monitored on a daily basis.



TIER 1


The majority of OCHS students fall into this tier. It involves teaching and re-teaching behavior expectations through classroom lessons, morning announcements, and teacher/staff conferencing with the student. This tier also involves rewarding positive behaviors through the “Titan Tokens” program and other recognition programs for students who are following the behavior expectations. These students do not need to be monitored on a daily basis.
