ACTION ITEM

 

SUBJECT

Job Description Amendment: Behavior Analyst

RATIONALE

Our division was accepted into and began participating in the Virginia Tiered Systems of Support (VTSS) grant in the 18-19 school year. In this process the division receives funding and ongoing professional development, support and consultation from VDOE assigned VTSS systems coaches. Part of the capacity development for the division is to make sure that processes have been put in place to provide consistency and continuity as time goes on and staff members change. While the division behavior analyst currently serves as the VTSS coordinator, ACPS currently has no documented designated position as the coordinator for the VTSS and Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) processes. To incorporate this documentation, one line is recommended to be added to the job description for the behavior analyst designating this position as the VTSS/PBIS coordinator for the division.
