The disproportionate use of exclusionary discipline among some groups of preschool children is a national concern. Data from the Behavior Incident Report System (BIRS), designed for programs implementing the Pyramid Model, can help program leadership teams analyze behavioral incidents and identify exclusionary discipline practices. Presenters described the BIRS, shared guidance on state analysis of BIR data and the use of exclusionary discipline, and presented critical questions that can be answered with BIR data.
