Tier 3 Behavior Interventions

In speaking to educators from around the country and around the world, one of the most prominent pain points that they always seem to bring up is student behavior, and the effect that it has on their teaching environment. It’s no secret that a classroom that is experiencing severe behavior issues among its students is not going to be a very easy place to teach…..or to learn. management strategy can help achieve one of the main goals of education; encouraging students to continue learning for their entire lives, even outside of the classroom.

When we talk about Tier III Behavior Interventions, we are focusing on students who are unresponsive to Tier I and Tier II Intervention Strategies. These are students who exhibit the most severe behavioral issues, and usually only represent about 5% of the total school population. But those 5% of students can end up disrupting 100% of your classroom, if the behavior is severe enough. According to this article from the Shqboygan Area School district, students exhibiting these types of behavior issues are often experiencing some kind of life crisis, or have developed chronic problem behaviors. 

After two years of experiencing a global pandemic, increased access to the internet and to social media, not to mention all the other issues that are facing our young people in 2022, it’s no surprise that this type of behavior is on the rise, and is becoming one of the top issues that our nation’s teachers are struggling with.

But what do we do about these issues? Well, we believe that it’s vitally important to have a school-wide behavior intervention program that will help manage stress for teachers and school leaders, as well as meet the needs for all of their students. We also believe that improved learning environments for ALL students can improve parent relations, which can further help alleviate some of the stress that behavior issues can cause. 

It’s not enough to simply share these strategies with teachers and educators, and to expect them to implement them on their own. We believe that it is critical to develop a school-wide program, and focus on step-by-step implementation of that program, to develop a cohesive strategy that works for all students. 

There are a wide variety of articles, books, and businesses that support Tier 3 Behavior Intervention programs – you may already be using them in your school – but they can often be very expensive, and don’t offer much in the way of follow-up support. We’ve put together a 4-Part Webinar Program, specifically on Tier III Behavior Interventions, that can be delivered on YOUR schedule. It comes with the option of follow-up support, and a variety of tools – strategies AS WELL AS implantation tools – like forms for tracking information, so you can be confident that the program will work for your school.

3. Classroom Management is a Timeless Foundation of Sound Instructional Practice This has not changed since the days of the one room schoolhouse on the prairie. We all know this to be true. It was the case yesterday, it is the case today, and it will be the case tomorrow. The techniques and practices vary and improve – but if your classrooms are not well managed – they are not good places for students to learn or feel cared for. 4. Teacher (and Principal) Wellness depends upon it. Recent studies show that one of the major sources of stress and burn out for teachers is the challenges they face with student behavior issues. This has become even more challenging during the COVID-19 Pandemic. A Classroom Management program provides a low maintenance – high impact way of providing teachers a lifeline – practical strategies they can use to reduce stress and enjoy their profession. 5. Enhances relationships with Families and the Community In schools with well managed classrooms the pervasive “read” of families and communities is that the school is well run. Sound classroom management practices throughout the school empower principals to establish sound relationships which we know is critical for building highly effective schools. 6. Supervision and Personnel Issues The most frequent issue behind personnel issues with teachers is their capacity to build effective relationships with students and families. Classroom Management cannot “fix” every problem, but it CAN influence many and turn problem situations into positive situations. It supports principals with helping and supporting teachers grow and continue in their profession. These reasons are not the only ones that make an effective Classroom Management strategy so important, but they do provide an outline for why an effective program is essential to creating positive teaching and learning environments for students and teachers.
