Purpose of BIT

Madison Area Technical College is concerned about the care, welfare, safety and security of all of its students, faculty, and staff, and is committed to providing an environment where individuals are free to work, learn and teach, unencumbered and uninhibited by threats of intimidation and harm.

Scope of the Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT)

  • The BIT is a central clearinghouse to coordinate responses to student behaviors of concern from students, faculty and staff. When red flags are raised about specific student behavioral concerns, the BIT will follow up on these concerns.

  • The BIT is an interdisciplinary team that meets weekly to assess and implement an intervention plan to students deemed to be at risk to themselves or others socially, mentally and physically.

  • The BIT balances the needs of "behaviorally at risk" students with the safety and security of the larger college community.

  • The BIT is responsible for ensuring the college's policies and procedures regarding proper behavior are upheld and properly administered.

  • The BIT works to connect the dots for behaviorally at risk students but DOES NOT REPLACE other classroom management or disciplinary processes.
