Beta Team

A multidisciplinary group that assesses and responds to reports of students with concerning behaviors. Students, staff, and parents can report (with the option to remain anonymous).

The BETA Team reviews the report of concern, checks to see if the student is exhibiting concerning behaviors in other areas on campus, learns more about the student’s experience on our campus, and develops a strategy to support the well-being and academic success of the student.
