FBA/BIP Essentials for Families

Does your child have concerning behaviors at school? Did you know that there is a process to identify and support your child at school?

Join us to learn about the FBA and BIP process and how it is used in FCPS to support any student who experiences behavioral challenges.

  • Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA) is a process to determine the underlying cause or functions of a student’s behavior that impedes social, emotional, and academic learning.
  • Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP) is a plan that utilizes positive behavioral interventions and supports to address behaviors that interfere with learning.

Staff from the Office of Special Education Instruction, Office of Intervention and Prevention Services, and Office of Special Education Procedural Support will be presenting and sharing information.
