Behavior (Student)

PATH: Student Information > General > Behavior

The Student Behavior tab provides a history of the student’s behavior events, both positive and negative. This collection of student information can be used to review an individual's participation in behavior incidents, such as in a conference with parents. Information about other participants is not included in this tab. Behavior records do not lock and can be edited at any time.

Incidents appear in date order grouped by the calendar of enrollment. Any outstanding detention time and all suspension days assigned to the student based on the Duration in School Days field on the Resolution editor are totaled at the top of the tab.

When the Behavior Preference to lock completed discipline incidents is set to Yes, a lock icon displays next to those records in the Behavior list.

The following articles are available:

Navigate Behavior Tools

Because the Student Behavior tab is largely read-only, several options for accessing other Behavior tools are available on the tab.

Navigating to Behavior Tools from the Student Behavior Tab

Incidents are created in the Referral or the Management Tool. Users with the correct tool rights can click the Behavior Management button at the top of the tab or the hyperlinked Incident ID to open the incident in the Management Tool and modify incident, event, participant or resolution information.

For events with a resolution of Detention, student detention served can be recorded through this tab. Click the Detention button at the top of the tab or the Manage Detention hyperlink in the Resolution information to access the detention editor within the tab. Detention can also be entered in the Detention Tracker.

Resolutions are assigned to individual participants in an event and can be assigned through the behavior tab using the Add Resolution button at the bottom of the Resolution information.

Events that have uploaded files associated with them display with a paperclip icon next to the event name and next to the participant's role (offender, victim, etc.). These files are uploaded using the Manage Files option on the Behavior Management or Behavior Referral editors. Selecting these events displays an Event Files section on the Incident Detail editor. Viewing and downloading these files requires a tool right called Allow Access to Attached Files. If a user does not have this right, they are only able to see the name of the file(s) is associated with the event, but they cannot view the file or download the file.

  5. Click the Check for attendance conflicts button to verify the student does not have existing attendance records. If there are existing attendance records:
    1. Choose to Save attendance but do not overwrite (will save the attendance code and dates for the attendance entry, but will not make changes to existing entries).
    2. Choose to Save the resolution but not the attendance entry (will only save the entered resolution information. 
  6. Click the Save button when finished. The assigned resolution is saved and appears on the student's behavior tab and is stored with the behavior management entry, and depending on the options chosen for the attendance entry, the student's attendance tab is also updated with attendance information related to the behavior incident.
