School Based Intervention Team (SBIT) Services

This service is available in the following region(s):

Pacific Clinics’ School-Based Intervention Teams (SBIT) offer a full continuum of multi-tiered programs and services for educators and students in general and special education. Services are available year-long, across settings.

The SBIT team can work alongside district staff with the implementation of social emotional curriculum (SEL), teaching school-wide expectations and rules across settings, and implementing school-wide reinforcement systems.

This collaboration ensures that a student’s academic, behavioral, attendance and/or health needs are being met in school to ensure a successful educational experience. Services implemented by the SBIT workforce are developmentally appropriate and evidence based. We apply function-based strategies to achieve positive educational and social-emotional outcomes.

Tiered services

  • Tier I: designed to prevent the development of new problem behaviors.
  • Tier II: focuses on supports and early intervention for students identified through needs assessments as at-risk for mental health concerns
  • Tier III: provides highly individualized, targeted and intense/focused supports to students with serious problem behaviors who do not respond to Tier II interventions
