The SAT team is charged with:
1) Prevention of inappropriate student behaviors, and
2) Providing early intervention for students exhibiting concerning behaviors.

The SAT team is a cross-functional group composed of faculty and staff who have education, training and experience in
assessing and offering behavioral interventions. The team meets in a structured format the first Friday of each month and
coordinates informal meetings as needed throughout the school year to discuss and monitor student behavior. 

The SAT team supports a safe campus through a structured CARE (Climate, Assessment, Resources, Education) model.
The team monitors the campus climate through faculty, staff and student conversations; assesses concerning behavioral
reports through the uses of the NABITA Threat Assessment Tool; provides healthy behavior resources to students, faculty
and staff; and to provide educational training to faculty and staff to facilitate and support healthy classroom behaviors.
