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.

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.

Student Behavior Tab

This article describes core fields and does not include all state-specific fields. State-specific articles, when they exist, can be found in the Localized Tabs areas in the Localization section.

Navigate Behavior Tools

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

Navigating to Behavior Tools from the Student Behavior Tab

A total of the student's Outstanding Detention Time, Total Suspension Days for the Selected Year and the Total Suspension Days for the Selected Calendar display above the list of the student's behavior incidents.

Detention and Suspension Calculations

Resolutions are assigned to 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.

Link Behavior Records and Attendance Records

Schools can link behavior resolutions with attendance records, letting the attendance office and teachers know that the student is not in class because of a behavior incident.

    2. Choose to Save the resolution but not the attendance entry (only saves 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.

Add a Resolution

Behavior resolutions are the course of action taken by the school or district in response to the behavior event. Resolutions can be mapped to state-specific codes for state reporting in the Admin area of the Behavior module.

Behavior Resolutions that result in the student serving detention (as indicated by a Subtype of Detention assigned to the Resolution Type) require additional information compared to other resolutions. See the Recording a Resolution of Detention section below for more information.

Resolutions are attached to the student's participation in a single event, rather than the incident as a whole.
