Currently in its third year of PBIS implementation, Lindop Elementary School, District 92, began implementing a Tier 2 intervention, Check-in Check-out (CICO), in December 2009. An automated phone message system is used to remind family members to ask students for Daily Progress Reports  (DPR) and reinforce their success. By March 2010, 38 students were receiving support through CICO, with 60% of students experiencing decreases in their total number of office discipline referrals (ODRs) and 50% maintaining or reducing their ODRs to zero.

Overall, this group of students experienced a 37% decrease  in ODRs after seven weeks of CICO participation and 83% of students experienced success on their daily goals. Lindop’s PBIS team attributes the success to proper planning and communication with staff, students, and families.
