Behavior Intervention Team



The Behavior Intervention Team (BIT) is a support mechanism and safety net for students experiencing difficulties. The goal is to seek solutions that will support the student and, hopefully, prevent the necessity of disciplinary action. Anyone can make a referral to the BIT if they notice a student who needs support or assistance. Referrals to BIT can be made via email or phone call to any member of the team.

Team Members: Crystal Morse, Matt McCann, Bernadette Johnson (Del Norte), Josh Stanley, Andrew Nichols, Cedric Aaron, Bob Brown, Jason Maki, and Stephanie Freyermuth
