Check-In, Check-Out, (CICO), is a Tier II, group-oriented intervention, designed especially for students whose problem behaviors (a) are unresponsive to Tier I practice and systems, (b) do not require more immediate individualized interventions, and (c) are observed across multiple settings or contexts.

Because CICO is a group-based, standardized intervention, it is efficient and cost-effective. For example, the program can accommodate a number of students (e.g., up to thirty), and students can enter the program within a few days following referral. CICO also provides a built-in system for (a) monitoring students’ progress in the program, (b) evaluating the fidelity of implementation, and (c) transitioning to a self-managed program.

Check-In, Check-Out Features and Benefits:

  • Increased positive adult contact
  • Embedded social skills training
  • Direct link to school-wide behavioral goals and expectations
  • Frequent feedback and positive reinforcement
  • Daily home-school communication
  • Goal setting for behavioral goals
  • Improves mild to moderate problem behavior
  • Short term intervention to goal of self-management


Teams will leave with everything they need to implement their own Check-In Check-Out program as part of the Tier II system including:

  • Identifying a coordinator
  • Establishing routines
  • Setting up a daily progress point card
  • Developing a point trading (reinforcement) system
  • Defining student decision rules
  • Creating training for students, staff, parents and Tier II team members
  • Progress monitoring of students and their plans
  • Assessment of fidelity of implementation.
