    Row reduced representations of behaviors over fields posses a number of useful properties. Perhaps the most important feature is the predictable degree property. This property allows a finite parametrization of the module generated by the rows of the row reduced matrix with prior computable bounds. In this paper we study row-reducedness of representations of behaviors over rings of the form $\mathbb{Z}_{p^r}$, where $p$ is a prime number. Using a restricted calculus within $\mathbb{Z}_{p^r}$ we derive a meaningful and computable notion of row-reducedness.
