NISD has adopted the CHAMPS model to set clear, concise expectations for our students. The overall goal of the CHAMPs classroom management system is to develop an instructional structure in which students are responsible, motivated, and highly engaged in the specific task at hand. The teacher's goal is to teach students directly how to be successful in specific class and school-wide situations.

Conversation  Can students talk to each other? 
Help  How do students get their questions answered?
How do they get your attention? 
Activity What is the task or objective? What is the end product? 
Movement Can students move about? 
Participation What does the expected student behavior look and sound like?
How do students show they are fully participating? 
Success  If students follow CHAMPS expectations, they will be successful?
