The Curriculum Corner: Schoowide PBS & "Check & Connect"

Over the years, we have seen much success with our Schoowide PBS programming; however, we are always looking for new routines to support our Tier 2 & Tier 3 students. At Bullock we have been utilizing the CICO (Check-In/Check-Out) program; however, there is a growing body of research that supports C&C (Check & Connect) programs. Click here to learn more about C&C, how it differs from CICO & how it can support our Bulldog Buddies program. As we prepare for our last Bulldog Buddies Meeting, take some time to look this over as we will be talking about this new component. In the meantime, don't forget to share your thoughts via email, social media or in the footer of the Buzz!
