Behavior Assessment & Care (BAC)

BAC: Behavior, Assessment & Care

Colleges and Universities around the country are becoming more diligent and proactive in providing a safe environment for students, faculty, staff, and visitors to their campuses. Changes in the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) have given administrators appropriate flexibility and deference regarding the disclosure of educational records and information. The U.S. Department of Education encourages schools and colleges to develop threat assessment programs and teams. Nationally, these teams are often known as BIT (Behavior Intervention Team).

At Moorpark College, in addition to addressing possible behavior and safety concerns, we also include a specific focus on providing support for students who have been identified with concerning behaviors. In light of these dual emphases, our local team name is BAC, the Behavior, Assessment, and Care Team. In order to maintain currency on issues related to BAC, Moorpark College is an active member of the National Behavioral Intervention Team Association (NaBITA).
