     Check-in, Check-out Program (CICO)

    • CICO is a PBIS Tier 2 intervention program for students who may need more positive adult attention and structured feedback to be successful in school. It is very important that this is a positive experience for the student to help encourage them to make good choices.
    • Goals of CICO – 1) Improve student engagement, 2) Reduce office referrals, 3) Improve academic success
    • Student Cohorts – Each quarter a new cohort of students is selected to participate in CICO.  Please note that students can opt-out of the program.
    • Student Requirements 
      • Pick up Tally Sheet every morning in the lobby.
      • Have each teacher fill out and initial tally sheet (each hour every day)
      • At the end of the day drop off tally sheet in the Main Office and pick up a piece of candy.
      • Each student who turns in their sheet every day of the week will receive some special recognition from a school administrator or PBIS Team member.
    • Staff Involvement –
      • Greet the student warmly when they give you their CICO rating sheet.
      • Sometime during the class period circle the rating scores, initial the sheet and give back to the student. Give a positive compliment or statement to the student when returning the slip.
      • At the end of the day, each CICO student will turn in their slips to the office and receive a piece of candy as incentive to turn in their slips.
    • Data Collection – Tally sheets for each student will be tracked on a digital log.  At the end of the quarter we will compare student data (discipline referrals, grades, attendance) from quarters 1 & 2 with quarter 3 to see if there was improvement.
