Student Discipline and Behavior Support

  • We have a team of Behavior Support Assistants and Technicians who provide services to students and school staff throughout the district, one permanently serving New Directions Center.
    As of 2018-19, please note that there is a new MTSS requirement. All-District BSA referrals must be reviewed in MTSS (or another problem-solving team committee) at least twice before being referred for District BSA support. MTSS meeting dates and minutes in which the specific student information was reviewed must be submitted with the other required documentation.
    If you would like to discuss a referral or get more information about the program, please contact Kendra Suggs-Shealey, District Intervention & Support Coordinator at

    The Discipline Supervisor ensures that the implementation of the District’s policies concerning discipline is fair and equitable.
