This service outlines the possible supports for students with high-risk behaviour challenges where typical school based interventions have been exhausted. Our team uses PBIS and UDL principles to guide our practice.
The Behaviour Support Team uses a PBIS Three-Tiered approach in collaboration and consultation with School-Based Teams:
- Green Zone Interventions: School and class-wide systems for all students, staff, and settings.
- Yellow Zone Interventions: Targeted group interventions for students at risk for behaviour.
- Red Zone Interventions: Individualized and specialized interventions for high-risk behaviour.
- Provide consultation and collaboration in re-assessing and planning alternative individual behaviour programs within the school and/or the school district regarding students displaying chronic high-risk behaviours.
- Facilitating the Functional Analysis of Behaviour (FBA) and Behaviour Intervention Plan (BIP) process with school teams.
- Participate with bi-annual District Behaviour Packages Review to help school teams establish current and evidence based behaviour interventions that also comply within Ministry of Education Special Ed. Criteria.

- Members of school-based teams can request support from the Learning Services Behaviour Support team. Typically, requests are made by school counsellors, school administrators, or team leaders of a school-based team.
- When high-risk behavioural challenges are accompanied by diagnosed disabilities in sensory, cognitive and neurological areas, an Inclusion Teacher may provide support on a case-by-case basis.
