Minor Behaviors are also known as those behaviors that the classroom teacher or school employee should be able to handle without the need for administrator intervention.  These behaviors should be regular classroom management scenarios. Of course, three of these behaviors within a school day period indicate a larger problem, and would result in a major behavior discipline referral.  

Minor Behavior incidents are those that can and should be retaught by the school employee who witnesses the behavior infraction.

Minor Behaviors may include but are not limited to:

  • Inappropriate Language

  • Not Prepared (i.e. computer not charged, no paper)

  • Noncompliance (not completing work, not following directions)

  • Non Aggressive Physical Contact

  • Inappropriate Comments/Expressions/Gestures

  • Minor Disruptions of Instruction or School Activity

  • Dishonesty

  • Technology Violation
