Teacher Check

Keep track of your students with a check-in/check-out plan digitally within PBIS Rewards. You can customize each student’s check-in/check-out to fit their needs. Teachers will have quick access to their students who are participating in a check-in/check-out plan. PBIS Rewards allows your plans to be completely digital with configurable goals! By going digital with your plans, student progress is visible to coaches all throughout the day. This provides an opportunity for coaching in real time and gives you the ability to recognize when to intervene. You will also have reporting available at a per-student level.
