Behavior Intervention Committee header
  • The Behavior Intervention Program ensure that students are assigned to the most appropriate setting, which is conducive to learning, maximizes academic achievement, growth and development.

    Our program ensures that all students are academically and socially successful. As such:

    • Events that are flagged through the Elementary Level Discipline Matrix should be recommended for the Behavior Intervention Program through the Expulsion Abeyance Office 754-321-1670.
    • Repeated PROMISE incidents should be referred to the Behavior Intervention Committee by completing the process outlined in the Behavior Intervention Handbook for traditional assignments.

    Through the structures provided in this program, it is expected that students will acquire the necessary skills to enable them to optimally function in the traditional school setting.

    In November 2013 the School Board of Broward County, Florida, approved a historic new Collaborative Agreement on School Discipline in an effort to close the schoolhouse to jailhouse pipeline; the Promise Program.
