What is CHAMPS?

For a brief overview from Dr. Randy Sprick click on this link:



CHAMPS strategies are easy to implement and will:

  • Reduce classroom disruptions and office referrals
  • Improve classroom climate
  • Increase student on-task behavior
  • Establish respectful and civil interactions

By following the effective, research-based practices outlined inCHAMPS, teachers develop methods for clearly communicating their expectations on every classroom activity and transition. Expectations to clarify are:

Conversation: Can students talk to each other during this activity?
Help: How do students get the teacher's attention and their questions answered?
Activity: What is the task/objective? What is the end product?
Movement: Can students move about during this activity?
Participation: How do students show they are fully participating? What does work behavior look/sound like?
Success: When students meet CHAMPS expectations, they will be successful!


  • Teachers establish clear expectations with logical and fair responses to misbehavior.
  • Teachers spend less time disciplining and more time teaching.
  • Teachers learn tools to motivate students to do their best.
  • Students are taught how to behave responsibly.
