Who can make a BIT referral?
Anyone who feels a student’s behavior is concerning can make a BIT (Behavioral Intervention Team) referral, including students, parents, faculty, staff and community members.
What do I do if I know a student who may need to be referred to the BIT process?
What happens after I make the referral?
BIT team members evaluate the information and make a decision about whether the student should be assessed/interviewed. Reporting, however, is the most critical step.
BIT provides students with confidential, respectful, proactive support, while offering resources and balancing the educational needs of students with the mission of SCC.
How do I know if a concerning behavior is a BIT issue, or is more appropriately handled by other campus resources?
You do not have to make this determination. The most critical step is that you report the concerning behavior by completing the Student Concern form. If another campus resource is more appropriate, BIT will refer the student and handle the transfer of information.
NOTE: Never promise confidentiality to student(s) during initial referral.
