ehavior is not only about students exhibiting challenges; it involves everyone in the school environment. There is a science that examines the relationship between individuals’ behavior and the elements of the environment. Once understood and put into practice, solutions are greater than problems and learning takes precedence over behavior. Invest in proactive supports at the beginning of the school year and reduce additional challenges and costs later.
