Tier 1 universal supports are the core programs and strategies provided to all students within the school in order to promote successful student outcomes and prevent school failure. Unless discipline issues are at a minimum, instruction will be interrupted and teaching time will be lost. Additionally, poor academic performance may lead to students engaging in problem behavior that results in escaping academic tasks.
Establish behavioral expectations to build your school culture.
Observe students and let them know what they are doing well, or what they should be doing instead.
Teach expectations in new and novel situations, including outside the building.
