Check & Connect Implementation Tools & Resources

We provide the following tools to help sites implement Check & Connect with fidelity:

Check & Connect Manual

The primary tool for all sites implementing Check & Connect is the Check & Connect Manual: Implementing with Fidelity (2012 edition).

Training & Consultation

We offer several Check & Connect training and consultation options for administrators, coordinators, and mentors that are delivered on-site or in select cities across the U.S. Trainees are provided with a copy of the manual and electronic implementation forms and templates that they can then modify to suit the needs of their site. Schools and organizations contracting for on-site training also receive follow-up technical assistance to help ensure fidelity of implementation. Grant writing assistance — to include Check & Connect in a grant proposal — is also available.

Sample Resources

The following tools are a small sampling of the electronic materials provided to trainees; however, these samples are in PDF and not modifiable. Feel free to download these tools:
