Leal Elementary School, Urbana USD 116, saw a 46% decline in office discipline referrals (ODRs) since implementing Check-in Check-out (CICO), a Tier 2/Secondary intervention in 2008. Leal’s CICO program involved 23 students, 14 of whom accounted for 101 ODRs from August 2008 to December  2009. Below is a sample of 9 of the 23 students tracked during the 2008-09 and 2009-10 school years that shows the impact CICO involvement has had on the students’ and the school’s data:  reducing ODRs by 76% from 88 to only 21.
