The purpose of the Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) is to maintain a safe educational and working environment for students and employees by monitoring, assessing, and intervening potentially disruptive student and employee behavior.  BIT goals include helping provide an environment where students and employees are free to learn, work, and teach, uninhibited by threats of intimidation or harm and helping provide confidential, respectful, proactive support, and referrals to resources to individuals who are exhibiting concerning behaviors.   The BIT is not a disciplinary board, but rather a point of contact for reporting individuals who are displaying concerning behavior.  These guidelines are in place to comply with TBR Policy 7:02:00:00 and CSCC Policy 1:20:00:00
