Many schools use Check-In/Check-Out (CICO) to assist students in Tier II and Tier III interventions. However, moving from the physical classroom to a distance learning environment can be an additional challenge for CICO students. These students benefit on the connection that CICO provides, and it might feel impossible to give them what they need to be successful. Fortunately, PBIS Rewards’ digital Check-In/Check-Out feature can help schools to maintain that connection!
Using Digital CICO for Distance Learning
PBIS Rewards recently hosted a flash webinar entitled “Digital CICO – Staying Connected in Distance Learning,” which included educators from Parklane Elementary School in Fulton County, Georgia. These panelists were:
- Leondria Gray, RTI Interventionist
- Jesse Williams, Assistant Administrator
- Jennifer Gonzalez, School Psychologist
Parklane Elementary uses PBIS Rewards and the digital CICO feature included in our software. As Fulton County’s schools entered into a long-term distance learning environment, Parklane educators sought ways to connect with their CICO students in ways that would help them continue to grow. They contacted PBIS Rewards Support for guidance and spoke with our own Jill Hanson.
Jill is a Senior Educational Support Consultant with PBIS Rewards and joined us on this webinar. Our Senior Educational Relationship Consultant Emily Fiedler led the discussion.

Connecting With Students Using Digital CICO for Distance Learning
Because Parklane Elementary was already using PBIS Rewards, they were familiar with our software. However, they needed to adapt their CICO to more effectively serve their Tier II and Tier III students from a distance. Topics covered during this webinar included:
- Adjusting goals for CICO students
- Using Microsoft Teams to connect with students visually
- Encouraging parental involvement
- The importance of maintaining a sense of normalcy
- Teaching online rules and etiquette
- Finding virtual rewards that work for your students
- Tailoring goals for individual students
This flash webinar was an in-depth look at what one school is doing to address specific behavioral needs for individual students. It’s possible with digital CICO from PBIS Rewards!
