Behavior in Student Success

Student behavior that results in discipline referrals and suspensions is connected to students falling off track for graduation. Behavioral early warning indicators can help you monitor trends before more intensive interventions are required.

Behavior in the School and District View

In Student Success, educators can track students’ behavior incidents based on data including discipline referrals, infractions, and suspensions. Students are designated as “On Track for College/Career Readiness” if they have not had any incidents, “On Track for Graduation” if they have had incidents on 1-2% of school days, “At Risk” for incidents on 3-5% of school days, and “Critical” for incidents on more than 5% of school days. 

It is important to note that Panorama chose to calculate the behavior indicator based on percentage of days with incidents, rather than number of incidents, because we found it essential to our student-first thinking. Calculating based on the percentage allows students the opportunity to improve throughout the year.

For schools and districts that track students’ positive behaviors, such as those using a Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS) framework, Panorama Student Success displays behavior indicators based on these points or recognition occurrences. For example, educators can view students’ behavior indicator based on a weekly average of positive behaviors (e.g., students are “On Track for Graduation” if they average more than 10 positive behavior points per week). From a student’s profile, educators can view a detailed summary of each behavioral incident or point, including the date, action, who it was reported by, and outcome. 

Behavior in the Student Profile

The student profile provides more detail about the behavior incidents that have been reported for a student. Our default is to show a summary as well as specifics about each incident. If you have any concerns about showing this information, please contact your Panorama project team, as they will be able to advise on configuring this section to meet your needs.
