Pool cave in after rebar before gunite because of rain

The pool builder is putting wood around the sides of the pool to keep it from caving in further. He says he will leave the wood in for the gunite to stick to and I am concerned about this being the best solution. Is it okay to leave the boards in for the gunite stage?

My old build thread. We had a hurricane come through. The wood was removed after the gunite cured. The reinforced panels were left.
