With parental permission, service providers can now communicate and collaborate with schools to ensure supports are aligned and consistent. ● Teachers: With grading and preparing for a classroom lessons, it can be difficult to think about individual student interventions.

  16. 16. What schools across the Nation are saying about RyeCatcher? 16 “Ryecatcher was an easy to use tool that allowed me to track student behavior and attendance to group therapy...I loved that the notes were in real time and gave me access to students' progress and parental/teacher communication. Ryecatcher was an excellent compliment to my individual counseling sessions and provided a framework for the interventions I used with my students each week.” - Casey Chambers, School Social Worker “I liked how accessible the site was. Being able to look at the notes that each student had documented was essential in working as an intern. I will never forget the time that an incident occurred and months later documentation was needed. I was able to print off what I had documented and it actually saved someone's job!” - Felisha Mason, Counselor “Rye is user-friendly.....very easy to made tracking your clients easy for not just me but the entire school.” -Jerry Smith, Behavioral Specialist
