Effective Behavior Support (EBS) Survey: Assessing and Planning Behavior Support in Schools

The EBS Survey is used by school staff for initial and annual assessment of effective behavior support systems in their school. The survey examines the status and need for improvement of four behavior support systems: (a) school-wide discipline systems, (b) non-classroom management systems (e.g., cafeteria, hallway, playground), (c) classroom management systems, and (d) systems for individual students engaging in chronic problem behaviors.

Assessment Modality

Initially, the entire staff in a school completes the EBS Survey. In subsequent years and as an on-going assessment and planning tool, the EBS Survey can be completed in several ways:
- All staff at a staff meeting
- Individuals from a representative group
- Team member-led focus group.

Most schools have staff complete the survey at the beginning or end of the school year.
