It might start when you notice something small. Then you notice another incident. A threat towards another student. Getting enraged over something minor. Comments of self-loathing. St. Clair College regularly monitors the care, welfare and safety of all of our students, faculty, and staff. We can't work, learn and live in an environment where we don't feel 100% safe.
That's where the Behavioral Assessment & Care Team (BACT) comes in. Our trained and experienced team members address student behavioural concerns that are not living up to the College’s objective of providing a non-threatening environment where everyone feels safe and secure. BACT addresses critical student behavioural through review of situations/incidents, information gathering and sharing, and providing recommendations to ensure the safety and educational success of the student. The BACT does not replace other classroom management or disciplinary processes nor does it address student behaviours that require immediate attention.
The success of this process hinges on every staff member’s commitment to reporting concerns. So, we thank you for reviewing this site and doing your part to keep our college campus the best that it can be!
The Terms of Reference for the BACT team can be found at this link: BACT Terms of Reference.
The student behaviour concern report is not meant to address emergency situations. Please follow the procedures outlined in 3.31 Policy to deal with such situations.
