Check & Connect Implementation

Schools, districts, and organizations across the U.S. and abroad are implementing Check & Connect to engage students at school and with learning. Check & Connect can be implemented as a school-based program with K-12 students in general education and/or special education, or as a community-based program serving such groups as youth with truancy issues, youth in the juvenile justice system, or youth in foster care (see Adaptations for Other Contexts). Check & Connect can be implemented at various levels, including school-wide, district-wide, or even state-wide (see Statewide Implementation Sites).

To support your implementation of Check & Connect, we offer various Implementation Tools & Resources. See links on the right for more information.
