The connection between student behavior and academic performance is well-established. Students who engage in problematic behavior generally perform less well academically, are more likely to miss class due to disciplinary actions, and are at greater risk of being ostracized by their peers. Check In, Check Out (CICO) is an evidence-based program which offers intensive assessment and intervention to address a wide range of academic and behavioral challenges within the school environment. This can include tardiness, poor attendance, and disruptive and/or attention seeking behaviors. Within CICO, student behavior is monitored by teachers via a daily report card and immediate feedback is provided to the student. For this research project, a process evaluation is conducted to determine whether CICO is being implemented as designed at a local high school. The program is evaluated against established CICO protocols with respect to program inputs, activities, outputs, and outcomes. Specific recommendations for improvement are offered.
