LEVELS OF DISRUPTIVE BEHAVIORS
When a student exhibits disruptive behavior(s) that are clearly destructive to self, others and/or property, CALL 9-1-1 immediately.
When a student exhibits disruptive behavior(s) that require a planned response, speak with the student, if possible. Submit a Behavioral Assessment Report to the Behavior Assessment Team and/or call 512-245-2124 and speak with the chairperson.
If a student exhibits behavior(s) that is not immediately disruptive but needs to be addressed quickly, speak with the student and make a referral to the appropriate office or service. For example, if the student appears intoxicated, make a referral to Student Justice; if the student mentions thoughts of suicide and/or uncontrolled crying, refer the student to the Counseling Center; and, if the student mentions that he or she have been the perpetrator or recipient of unwanted sexual activities, refer the student to the Sexual Misconduct Webline.
If a student exhibits behavior(s) that are not disruptive, but clearly inappropriate, speak with the student about the behavior(s) that are expected.
If, in the course of interactions, you are troubled by a student who appears to be overwhelmed with either an academic or personal matter, submit a PAWS Alert and the student will be contacted by the appropriate person or office within a few days.
