Core Prerequisites for Success


Problem-Solving Leadership Teams actively promote, as well as frequently recognize and reinforce, a school-wide culture that emphasizes dignity and respect for ALL staff and students in all circumstances. 


Problem-Solving Leadership Teams employ a problem solving model that aims to identify problem behaviors and then implement evidence-based interventions that are systematically used with students based on their specific issues and their demonstrated level of need.

Core Practices of Highly Effective Classrooms  


Charlotte Danielson's Framework for Teaching (2011 Revised Edition) describes specific research-validated components that are critical attributes to the Classroom Environment Domain.  These components include: 


       (a) Creating an Environment of Respect and Rapport

       (b) Establishing a Culture of Learning 

       (c) Managing Classroom Procedures

       (d) Managing Student Behavior

       (e) Organizing Physical Space


Core Curriculum for Behavior


Hillsborough County Public Schools (HCPS) partners with the Florida's Positive Behavior Support Project (FLPBS) RtI for Behavior.  Positive Behavior Support (PBS) is based on understanding why problem behaviors occur - the behavior's function. This approach to behavior can occur on a school-wide level, in a specific setting, classroom, or with an individual student. PBS is the application of evidence-based strategies and systems to assist schools to increase academic performance, increase safety, decrease problem behavior, and establish positive school cultures. For more information on the Florida's Positive Behavior Support Project click on the following link


Currently, there are specific sites who are implementing the PBS model on a schoolwide level.  For a list of current HCPS PBS schools please click here.  For more detailed information on how to become a PBS school please contact you school site administrator.   


In addition, HCPS provides professional development in the CHAMPS Model and Discipline in the Secondary Classroom that is designed to help the classroom teacher develop an effective classroom management plan that is proactive, positive, and instructional.  The acronym CHAMPS reflects the categories, or types, of expectations that teachers need to clarify for students about every major activity and transition that occurs in the classroom.  CHAMPS is not a canned program, but is a compilation of evidence-based strategies organized into important aspects of effective classroom management.  For more detailed information regarding CHAMPS or Discipline in the Secondary Classroom please contact your school site administrator.  Reproducible Forms allowed by the CHAMPS publisher are available to help teachers teach CHAMPS expectations for classroom activities and transitions.  However, these materials are only available to administrators and educators who purchase the book.  Discipline in the Secondary Classroom: A Positive Approach to Behavior Management, Second Edition (Sprick, R., 2008) is available for secondary level teachers to help improve middle school and high schools students academic engagement.


Skillstreaming is a research based prosocial skills training program published by Research Press that provides instruction on prosocial skills to youg children, school age, and adolescents.   Also available include trainings or book studies in Conscious Discipline and Love and Logic that serve to enhance school wide implementation of behavioral supports.  


Timeline for Launching Your Classroom Management Plan   


The best time to have an impact on student behavior is the first day of school.  Students rate teachers "best" who focus on teaching expectations and establishing guidelines for appropriate behavior from the the first day of school (Moskowitz & Hayman, 1976).  As a result, the first month of school is essential to starting the year with an effective classroom management plan that will result in increased appropriate behavior and improved academic performance (Emmer et al., 1980; Evertson & Anderson, 1979; Evertson & Emmer, 1982; Kounin, 1970.)  The following link includes a suggested timeline for launching a classroom management plan. 

Click here for Schedule for Teaching Rules and Procedures.  


Getting Started - The Classroom Environment 


Both CHAMPS and PBS models begin by directly teaching expectations.  By directly teaching expectations, the classroom teacher increases the likelihood of engaged and motivated students by Creating an Environment of Respect and Rapport (Charlotte Danielson's, 2011 Revised Edition from Framework for Teaching).  Explicitly teaching expectations and the associated rules matched to those expectations will include the following steps:  Post, Teach, Practice, Feedback and Reinforce.  Teach expectations along with specific procedures related to transitions and movement in the classroom.  A well designed routine can enhance student engagement.  Click here for Definition of Rules and Expectations and click here for information on Communicating Expectations.          



Teaching Behavioral Expectations



School-wide Positive Support (SWPBS) refers to a systems change process for an entire school or district. The underlying theme is teaching behavioral expectations in the same manner as any core curriculum subject. Typically, a team of approximately ten representative members of the school will attend a two or three day training provided by skilled trainers. This team will be comprised of administrators, classified, and regular and special education teachers.  This school-based problem solving team will review schoolwide student discipline data, develop a behavioral curriculum, design school-wide interventions, and will monitor students behavioral progress (review behavior data).   


One of the initial components of implementing SWPBS involves the development of three to five behavioral expectations that are positively stated and easy to remember for the entire school. In other words, rather than telling students what not to do, the school will focus on the preferred behaviors. Here are some examples from other schools:


  • Respect Yourself, Respect Others, and Respect Property
  • Be Safe, Be Responsible, Be Respectful
  • Respect Relationships and Respect Responsibilities 


After the SWPBS team determines the 3-5 behavioral expectations that suit the needs of their school, they will take this information back to the staff to ensure at least 80% of the staff buy in to the chosen expectations. Consistency from class to class and adult to adult is very important for successful implementation of SWPBS. 


The team will then create a matrix of what behavioral expectations look like, sound like, and feel like in all non-classroom areas.  The matrix will have approximately three positively stated examples for each area.  This would be filled out for each non-classroom area and each behavioral expectation.  The SWPBS team would take the matrix back to the whole staff to ensure 80% buy-in from the entire staff on what expectations are taught in each area.  Click here for an example of a matrix of behavioral expectations at the elementary level.  Click here for an example of a matrix at the secondary level.

CHAMPs Classroom Management: Free Behavioral Expectations Signs


When I was first introduced to the CHAMPs classroom management system, my first thought was that it was just another set of “classroom rules.” I soon found how wrong I was.

If you’d like a proven way to enhance your classroom management system without a load of mind-numbing “training,” CHAMPs may be just what you’ve been looking for.

And, it works like a charm for any subject area at any grade level—barring, of course, those little folks who have not yet learned how to read.

The free PDF’s offered on this page comes from a set of 100 classroom-ready signs that spell out your behavioral expectations for each of your specific classroom activities--small group work, study buddies, workshops, teacher-directed instruction, or virtually anything else that you undertake with your kids.

68 of these signs are ready to go, straight out of the box. The additional 32 are customizable. As a result, you may type in your own specific expectations for each of the letters in the CHAMPs acronym.

Use the provided graphics or the framed blanks--either way, your kids will know exactly what you expect of them in each of your classroom activities.

How CHAMPs Works
champs classroom management
Return to Top of Page

In my mind, I think of the CHAMPs management system as a set of highly-focused, activity-driven, temporary classroom rules. When you switch activities, the expectations change accordingly. Consider, if you will, the following examples.

When you present direct instruction to your kids, you sure don’t want them talking to each other, walking around the room, or leaving to go to the restroom. With the CHAMPs management system, you inform them of your behavioral expectations ahead of time for that particular activity.

Posting selected signs from the 100 CHAMPs Classroom Signs collection on your classroom whiteboard, bulletin board, or wall, your management plan for the particular activity of direct teacher instruction, for example, would look something like this:

When you are supervising small group activities, however, you most certainly want your kids to talk to each other about the task at hand. So too, they may need to move around the classroom to gather supplies or sharpen their pencils.

For the particular activity of small group work in say, a Geography class for example, selected signs from the 100 CHAMPs Classroom Signs collection would look like this:

As you’ve noticed in both of the example displays above, the acronym signs along the left never change (although you DO have a choice of two styles as shown above).

This is because CHAMPs defines five specific components of behavioral expectations for each successful classroom activity: Conversation, Help, Activity, Movement, Participation—all of which contribute to the “S” for Success.

The signs along the right most certainly change with each type of classroom activity because your behavioral expectations are activity-driven.

Now, I invite you to have a look at all of the specific signs included in the 100 CHAMPs Classroom Signs collection.

The 18 available signs for Conversation are presented in the slide show below.

The signs with blue boxes indicate areas of the customizable signs where you may type in any number of your own specific behavioral expectations regarding Conversation.

As you may have noticed, all of the signs for Conversation have the same style frame. This was done purposely to serve as a way of correlating the expectations themselves with the acronym letter they are associated with.

Here are the 12 signs for Help. The “Stand Up a Book” help sign refers to a silent signal for help that does not involve waving an arm distractingly in the middle of the classroom.

The student simply balances a textbook on its end and continues working while he/she waits for assistance.

7 of the Help signs are customizable. I know that some teachers prefer to use plastic cups—down-turned on desktops when no help is needed and reversed when they require assistance.

Whatever your preferred method is, the customizable blank frame (included for each letter in the CHAMPs acronym) gives you the opportunity to specifically spell out your procedure for students seeking help.

Again, the frame style for the Help signs match, making it easier to correlate the expectations with their associated acronym letter.


Return to Top of Page

There are 15 signs for Activity, and 7 of these are customizable (blue boxes are the typing areas).

I neglected to mention earlier that each set of expectations comes with your choice of two types of acronym letter signs—one is a bit fancier and the other is more toner-friendly. Which one you choose is entirely your call.


Return to Top of Page

Here are the 13 signs for Movement—2 of these are customizable.


Return to Top of Page

Needless to say, there are a number of ways in which students participate in class. With that in mind, there are a full 17 signs for Participation, and 7 of them are customizable.


Return to Top of Page

I like to begin a classroom activity by pointing to the Success sign at the bottom of the CHAMPs display and saying something like, “Alright, everybody. For you to be successful in today’s (insert the name of the class activity), we need to remember that the voice level is…”

And, then proceed down the signs in the order they appear. As you might imagine, the number of class activities is nearly boundless.

I did my best brainstorming and came up with a list of 18 that I felt were generally representative of common class initiatives:

Knowing the impossibility of covering ALL class initiatives, I included 8 customizable signs for success—7 of these allow you to tailor the name of the initiative with the clip art provided, and 1 blank frame in case the clip art does not fit with the initiative you have in mind.

And, there you have it—100 CHAMPs Classroom Signs!

Printing and Deployment Suggestions
champs classroom management
Return to Top of Page

I would strongly recommend, as I did on the previous page regarding CHAMPs, using 8.5 x 11 card stock paper (65 to 110 pound, thick paper) for printing the signs.

Once they’re printed, consider attaching them to the classroom whiteboard with fasteners that can be removed easily (adhesive on one side and magnetic on the other). These inexpensive fasteners can be purchased at your nearest office supply store.

Or, if you prefer to display them on a bulletin board, I’d recommend adhesive Velcro fasteners—one square in each corner.

Following either procedure above yields a set of displayable signs that will last for at least an ENTIRE school year—perhaps longer. After all, they’re durable, reusable, and you’re the only one who will be handling them.

Because they have such a long life, I would highly recommend printing all of the signs in color. These signs will really pop when they’re printed in color.

You know, as well as I do, how compelling color is to the human eye.

If color is not an option, these signs will still fit the purpose and look presentable wherever you choose to display them.

Involving the Kids
champs classroom management
Return to Top of Page

I have found that involving the kids in the development of the expectations themselves goes a LONG way toward insuring the success of the CHAMPs classroom management system. This makes the 33 customizable signs particularly well-suited for this initiative.

When you toss out questions to the class, such as, “What would be appropriate behavior to expect when we are reading silently?” Or, “What would be inappropriate behavior to expect during silent reading?” You’ll be amazed at how mature and logical their responses are!

Of course, you can always steer their responses by probing, prompting, and reasoning with them—all of the things you do so well with them already.

List their responses, one by one, on your whiteboard, or type them into a word processor connected to a digital projector as you brainstorm.

When they see for themselves that their responses are, in fact, logical, reasonable, appropriate, and mature, they will buy into it. They will adopt their own expectations as the laws of each classroom activity.

Possible CHAMPs Pitfalls
champs classroom management
Return to Top of Page

The potential pitfalls involving the CHAMPs classroom management system are limited, but nevertheless, they need to be mentioned.

1. Starting Time. This system works best if it is implemented on the very FIRST day of school. If you are introducing it later in the year, the overall success of this approach is entirely dependent on how well you handle it with your kids and how much you allow them to buy into it.

One tool that may facilitate the launching of CHAMPs in the middle of the school year is CHAMPs Companion, an 18-20 minute video book that introduces CHAMPs to students.

2. Include Student Input. If you allow the kids to formulate, with your guidance as outlined above, the behavioral expectations for each classroom activity, they will feel ownership in the approach and will be much more likely to abide by their own rules.

If you present your expectations as predetermined requirements, you can still make this work, however. Obviously, how you institute this management system is entirely up to you.

3. Sign Changing. More than one activity within one classroom session would necessitate a modification in behavioral expectations, and as a result, would require a change of at least five of the signs.

You can handle this efficiently in one of two ways: change the signs during the transition from the first to the second activity yourself, or select a dependable student (with clean, careful hands) to handle the change for you.

As you might imagine, pre-selecting the necessary signs for each of the two activities coupled with the matching frames for each of the CHAMPs acronym letters should make this a quick and straight forward task.

4.Establish Consequences. Finally, like any other sort of classroom management plan, this one has to have some teeth behind it. There just simply have to be consequences for non-compliant knuckleheads.

Your school’s or team’s progressive discipline plan may have to be invoked. If you’d like more information about formulating such a plan, I would encourage you to reference this page.

Bottom line: Implementing this plan on the very first day of school by involving the students in the decision-making process in the formulation of expectations is a nearly foolproof way of ensuring success.

Sure, it takes a little longer to launch a cooperative teacher-student initiative such as this, but the time spent doing it will repay you over and over all school year long.

If you are interested in a strategy that may successfully encourage students to be responsible, responsive, and proactive, the CHAMPs classroom management system is certainly worth trying.

Moreover, if this system works with my kids—and, it DOES, I know it will work with yours.

I tried to be as inclusive in my thinking regarding what to include in this collection as I could be, but I’m entirely positive that I’ve not designed signs for every conceivable option—thus, the presence of the customizables.

However, if you have glaring needs to address, please let me know about them.

Whether you are at the beginning of the school year or not, have a very successful and fruitful one. And, as always, best wishes to you and your kids.

I always believe in giving credit where credit is due.

The creator of The CHAMPs Classroom Management System is Dr. Randy Sprick of Safe and Civil Schools. If you would like additional information and/or training, you may contact them here.

Over the course of the last few years, several of our colleagues have requested a collection of CHAMPs classroom management signs. I thank each of you for, at last, putting me to the task.

In particular, I thank Naomi Foote, one of our fellow elementary teachers, who was kind enough to share the seed ideas for this endeavor (along with several clip art images from Santa Maria Elementary School).

Although I was not able to identify the specific person(s) who was/were responsible for the images, I thank them nevertheless.

Finally, the classroom clip art of Phillip Martin at, in my humble opinion, is uniquely superb. All of the images that he created in this collection are duly cited at the bottom of each sign upon which they appear.

Again, my sincerest thanks to all of you.
