This lesson provides information that will assist teams in developing adaptations to the Check-In, Check-Out (CICO) intervention to make it appropriate for implementation at the High School level.   While many of the basic principles are the same, there are modifications that will need to be considered due to the age of the students and the structure and size of the high school setting.

It is recommended that teams planning for High School implementation view this lesson prior to developing the CICO components as outlined on the Check-In, Check-Out Intervention Development Checklist and its accompanying lessons. This will allow for the consideration of adaptations for High School implementation as the Check-In, Check-Out lessons are completed.


By the end of this lesson, you will be able to:

  • Develop CICO Adaptations for High School Implementation.


This lesson is for Tier 2 teams in a High School setting that have developed their Tier 2 systems and have completed the CICO Introductory Overview.

Systems in place should include: 1) Tier 2 team roles and responsibilities, 2) identifying students for Tier 2 support, 3) collecting student information to make informed decisions and determine function of behavior, and 4) staff training and communication. Refer to Courses 1-4 for information about developing these systems.

Reflective Questions

  • Why would Check-In, Check-Out need to be adapted for a High School setting?
  • What might be some possible adaptations to consider?
