We are Safe, Responsible, & Respectful
Tier Two Services are put into place when a student is consistently displaying difficulties being safe, responsible, and respectful through the use of the Tier 1 universal interventions and supports. Tier 2 encompasses Check-in/Check-out (CICO) and Social Academic Instructional Groups (SAIG), and they may lead to a student being referred to a Problem Solving Team.
The first layer of support at the Tier 2 level is our Check-in/Check-out (CICO) program. CICO builds upon our Tier One interventions by providing some students a higher frequency of scheduled, positive feedback from adults, regarding the school-wide behavior expectations.
CICO can begin with any of the following processes:
- 3 or more major office referrals in a trimester (individual student SWIS data is reviewed by team)
- 3 minor referrals in 30 days
- Universal Screener- Score within the abnormal range in 2 or more categories in the Strengths
and Difficulties Questionnaire
- Teacher/parent/staff referral as well student self-referral
If a student is showing success in the CICO program he will follow the graduation from CICO path, but if the student continues to struggle he/she may follow the inclusion in a Social Academic Instruction Group (SAIG) path.
Entrance Criteria for Social and Academic Instructional Groups (SAIG)
CICO Exit Criteria:
- 80% of average daily points are met for 30 school days
- 80% of the daily point sheets must be turned in (i.e. 24/30
sheets must be turned in)
- No referrals
- Grades must remain the same or improve with no F's
- PowerSchool log entries are reviewed
One Week Self-Monitor
Once the Tier 2 team decides that a student is allowed to graduate from the CICO program the student must transition out, instead of just being dropped, without any support. The identified student will be placed on a 1 Week Self-Monitor. How will this work?
CICO Coach during the 6th & last week
If by the 6th week, the student continues to receive 80% for 80% of the time he/she has demonstrated that he/she has the skills necessary to be successful in CICO. Therefore, the student can be a positive role model to other students and could provide feedback to other students in the CICO program. On the 6th week the student will be assigned a select number of students to coach.
