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.
