Referrals By Problem Behavior
Non-compliance and Disruption was the most common reason youth were removed from class.
Referrals by Motivation
Avoidance of classroom activities showed significant increases as the population became less able to perform academically.
Referrals By Location
Most behavior problems occur in the classroom, which is partly due to how students are interacting with the curriculum. Lower functioning students can not do as much independent seat-work.
Referrals By Student
10 of the top 14 students with 10 or more class removals from April – June had IQs in the 60s and 70s.
Behavior Referrals are again decreasing as changes to systems and structures were made to accommodate a changing population. (see Feb –Jun 05)
