Behavioral Intervention Universal Screening

Duval County Public Schools are committed to improving the culture and climate of our schools and supporting the whole child. One way we are addressing the whole child is by looking at student strengths and areas of concern for academic, social, and behavioral well-being.

As mandated by the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act – your child will participate in universal screening (Behavioral Intervention Monitoring Assessment System: BIMAS-2) to identify student needs, provide prevention and/or positive supports and intervention. The survey will be administered in October to help support students. The survey will help schools identify students who may be at risk to develop academic or other school-related concerns. 

If you would prefer that your child not participate in the universal screening, please complete and sign the BIMAS-2 opt-out form, and return this form to the school by Friday, September 30, 2022.
