CHAMPS & Discipline in the Secondary Classroom
Kansas Department of Education - Technical Assistance System Network (KSDE TASN) partnered with Safe & Civil Schools to bring a "training of trainers" to Kansas for CHAMPS and Discipline in the Secondary Classroom.
Noalee McDonald-Augustine is a member of this training cadre and is not only a certified trainer for CHAMPS and Discipline in the Secondary Classroom (CHAMPS/DSC), but also in Interventions.
The CHAMPS/DSC model of classroom management is designed to help develop or fine-tune effective classroom management plans that are proactive, positive, and instructional. The training demonstrates research-based practices that overtly teach students how to behave responsibly - including the establishment of clear expectations for classroom activities and transitions; logical and fair responses to misbehavior; and tools to motivate students.
Interventions is designed to address the needs of individual students with chronic and/or severe emotional, social, or behavioral problems. Participants learn how to plan and implement evidenced-based, tiered strategies to increase motivation and improve behavior. These processes and support procedures reduce the number of students who “fall through the cracks” and who are suspended or expelled.
