The SAS 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. Each question in the survey relates to one of the four systems. Survey results are summarized and used for a variety of purposes including:

  1. annual action planning,
  2. internal decision making,
  3. assessment of change over time,
  4. awareness building of staff, and
  5. team validation.

The survey summary is used to develop an action plan for implementing and sustaining effective behavioral support systems throughout the school (see “Developing an SAS Annual Action Plan”).
