EUGENE, Ore. -- A member of the 4J school staff told board members on Wednesday night that it will cost at least $1 million to address aggressive student behaviors in the district.

Much of the money will go toward teacher training and a new behavioral/mental health partnership coordinator.

District staff recommended that a new "framework" be put in place which would divide students into three tiers, based on the severity of their misbehavior:

  1. Tier 1: students who struggle a little with behavior.
  2. Tier 2: students who need intervention and additional curriculum to help with social skills.
  3. Tier 3: students who struggle despite two levels of support.

"Behavior is never bad or good," Cheryl Linder, director of student services, said. "Behavior is simply a communication that there is a lagging skill or there is an area of instruction that is needed."

The presentation was for discussion only, and the board did not vote on the subject.
