Each behavioral incident or concern reported to the BIT will be different; however, the process by which the reports are
investigated will generally remain the same. The following is a general guide of how the BIT process will work:
A BIT Referral Report is received by BIT or one of its team members.
BIT calls a team meeting. At the meeting, the team members:
- Review the Threat Assessment and Intervention Tools to determine a generalized risk level
- Determine if the behavior should be handled at the BIT level or referred to a disciplinary process
- Identify next steps and/or appropriate resources if needed
An investigation may be initiated by contacting the student reported, as well as faculty and students who filed
the report on or interacted with the reported student. Other resources are consulted to determine whether there is
a pattern to the reported behavior.
BIT team members process all information received through the investigation and develop their recommendations. Recommendations
are discussed with the student who was reported, and the student's follow-through on completing the BIT recommendations is tracked.
Report to Team
A report is made to BIT team members via email, unless another face-to-face meeting is needed to discuss concerns raised
after meeting with the reported student.
Follow Up with Staff
The BIT team follows up with the person or persons who reported the incident to let them know action was taken.
Information on the incident reported is recorded for future reference and tracking.
