CHAMPS

CHAMPS is a school-wide proactive and positive approach to classroom management used to encourage student responsibility and motivation. The guiding principles behind CHAMPS enhance engagement and learning by empowering students with techniques to behave responsibly and respectfully.

The CHAMPS beliefs include:

 

  • -All members of our school community must be treated with dignity and respect.
        1. -Students should be taught skills and behaviors necessary for success.
        2. -Staff members should encourage motivation through positive interactions and building relationships with students.
        3. -Student misbehavior provides a teaching opportunity.


The students are directly taught to meet expectations by detailing each classroom activity and transition using the CHAMPs acronym:

C
Conversation
(How, why, and to whom may students talk during this activity?)
H
Help
(How can students get help or teacher attention?)
A
Activity
(What is the task or end product of the activity?)
M
Movement
(How much, when, and why may students move around?)
P
Participation
(What does on-task behavior look/sound like?)
S
Special Instructions
(Any additional information from the teacher)
