Restorative Practices provide schools with a framework to build community, strengthen relationships, and improve school climate. When Restorative Practices are implemented consistently, schools see improved relationships on campus, increased student accountability for misbehavior, and dramatic reductions in rates of suspension, DAEP placement, and expulsion.
Duncanville ISD views discipline as teaching students skills development to address challenges that may arise. The district recognizes that some students may need additional support to address behavior skill development.
The acronym stands for: Communication, Help, Activity, Movement, Participation and Success and it helps both students and teachers clearly define and know expectations throughout the campus. CHAMPS is based on the foundations provided by Randy Sprick's Safe and Civil Schools. For more information about Safe and Civil Schools, visit their website at http://www.safeandcivilschools.com
