What is the Behavior Universal Screener?
It is a screening tool used to help identify students at risk of future academic, behavioral or emotional difficulties in school. Just like some students benefit from additional academic support, there are some students who will benefit from additional support to strengthen their behavioral, social, and emotional skills.
How does it work?
Teachers in elementary schools will complete a one-page survey about students’ actions and emotions displayed in class during a one-week time period. Students at the secondary level will complete the surveys. School staff will use the screening results and data to identify students who may benefit from additional social and emotional support. The data will also be used to analyze and evaluate which school programs and interventions are effective.
