September 29, 2015: USOE has updated recommendations for Utah schools, Local Education Agencies (LEA) for behavior interventions.
Least Restrictive Behavioral Interventions (LRBI) Technical Assistance (TA) Manual
The LRBI Technical Assistance Manual has been revised to clearly reflect the following core principles:
■ All students can learn and achieve high standards if provided sufficient, appropriate opportunities to develop skills as a result of effective teaching.
■ Intervening at the earliest indication of both behavioral and academic needs is necessary for student success.
■ A comprehensive system of tiered interventions is essential for addressing the full range of student needs.
■ Student outcomes improve when ongoing behavioral and academic performance data inform instructional decisions.
■ All school personnel share responsibility for effective instructional practices and monitoring student progress.
■ Effective leadership at all levels is crucial for the maximum achievement of student outcomes.
