I am wondering if it would be a wise decision to include lunch on a CICO point sheet? What are the pro's and con's of doing this? Inconsistency with caregivers during the lunch block but it would also incentivize this time of day which may prove to be beneficial. Does anyone include this in their CICO sheet? Thank you!
Schools vary on including the lunch period or recess on the point sheet. If the school has an efficient system for accessing feedback from the school staff monitoring recess/lunch, it can be done. In this case, students would give their card to the staff member at the beginning of lunch and/or recess, and pick it up at the end, after talking with the school staff about the student’s behavior. Other schools have found this to be difficult and have not included recesses or lunch on the point card. If there are students that have behaviors that need to be monitored in those areas, a separate tracking system may work better (recess slip that the supervisory staff puts in the teacher’s box or hands to the teacher after lunch..) One suggestion from a school is that the teacher assumes the student has a “2” in the lunch or recess periods, unless the supervisory staff talk with the teacher, or put a note in the teacher’s box. The teacher and supervisory staff can talk with the student in this case to provide feedback.
