2020-2021 CHAMPS: A Proactive and Positive Approach to Classroom Management

CHAMPS, a framework developed by Safe and Civil Schools, offers a comprehensive classroom management plan that includes proactive, positive, and instructional strategies to address student behavior. Research has demonstrated that manipulating the following five key variables within a classroom management plan will improve student behavior in the classroom: Structure, Teach Behavior Expectations, Observe and Supervise, Interact Positively, and Correct Fluently (STOIC). When implemented, staff are more prepared to teach and effectively respond to student behavior. Within this 2-day training, participants will have opportunities to reflect on current practices, develop STOIC strategies for their setting, and collaborate with other participants. In addition, sessions include group discussion, movement, videos and work time to meet the learning objectives below. The training content is meant for all pre-k through high school educators (general education teachers, special education teachers, support staff, and administrators). It should be noted that the activities will be application-based, so those will be most meaningful to classroom teachers.
Learning Objectives/Outcomes: Participants will: 1. Understand that time devoted to teaching behavior proactively is important for future student engagement. 2. Identify structures for the classroom that maximize learning and minimize disruptions. 3. Develop rules, expectations and procedures for student behavior. 4. Understand the components of effective supervision. 5. Learn specific strategies for increasing positive to corrective ratio of interactions with students. 6. Identify strategies for effective corrections.

Satisfactory Completion: Credit for attending a course is based on your signature on the sign in sheet as well as sign out sheet. Participants are expected to attend the entire session to earn credit. Partial attendance may result in partial or no PD credit. All participants must complete an evaluation of the class within two weeks of the session or final session to be sent a certificate.
Cost Information: Workshop fees are waived for NSSED employees, Member District* employees, and parents of students in our member districts. For individual participants who do not meet the above criteria, this course participation fee is $300.00. All Registration or material fees will be billed directly to the school district that employs the participant after the session is complete or the first session in a series is complete. Individuals are asked to not bring payment to the session.
Cancellations: There is no cancellation fee, though we ask for advanced notice to open the spot for another person. NSSED reserves the right to cancel any workshop due to low enrollment.
Refunds: NSSED does not charge prior to the start of the course. If an individual attends the first day of a learning series but is unable to attend the remaining sessions, the school district that employs the participant is able to designate an alternate person. It is up the individual no longer attending the program to give their replacement the information learned in the first session. *Member Districts include:
