Bulloch County Behavior Screener Development and Tier 2 Intervention Support
School Psychology faculty members Dawn Tysinger, Ph.D., and Jeff Tysinger, Ph.D., worked with Bulloch County Schools to develop a behavior screener and behavior incident report form that will help teachers and administrators focus on behavior intervention and not just discipline. The screener is being piloted at three elementary schools this fall: Langston Chapel, Julia P. Bryant and Mattie Lively. The Tysingers will provide professional development on how to use the screener and incident report form, as well as the use of the data that is generated from the screeners to develop Tier 2 behavior interventions. Additional professional development on designing and facilitating Tier 2 behavior interventions will also be provided.
