We are the CHAMPS!

In order to provide our elementary students with the most appropriate environment for learning PLES is implementing a positive behavior support system from Safe and Civil Schools called CHAMPS.   Our goal is to empower school staff with techniques and strategies which will help all students behave responsibly and respectfully.

Beliefs include:
• Treating students with respect and dignity.
• Students are taught skills and behaviors necessary for success.
• Motivation and responsibility are encouraged through positive interactions.
• Any student misbehavior represents a teaching opportunity.

CHAMPS stands for Conversation, Help, Activity, Movement, Participation and Success.  Teachers explicitly teach expectations or CHAMP areas (lunchroom, hallway, restrooms).  Teachers are also developing efficient daily schedules, creating positive physical space for learning, using a school wide attention signal, designing effecting beginning and ending routines, managing student’s assignments and independent work periods.  To do this they use the STOIC procedure: Structure classroom for success, Teach behavioral expectations, Observe and supervise, Interact positively and Correct fluently.

CHAMPS is an evidence based approach to classroom behavior management which is not a curriculum or program but instead a collection of recommendations based upon 30 + years of research. With the implementation of this system we believe we will be providing your child with the best education experience.
