Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study is to examine the degree which teachers have implemented the CHAMPS program within a rural Midwestern School and the effect it is having on student behavior. It examines data received through an on line survey through Survey Monkey to teachers at the elementary, intermediate and high school levels and School Wide Information System (SWIS), an electronic referral system for recording noncompliant student behaviors. The survey had four sections covering demographics, perceptions and trainings of CHAMPs, the use of CHAMPs strategies, and teacher perception of the effects on student behavior. The results indicated that almost 30% of the teachers had not received an overview of RTI and almost 40% had not had CHAMPs training and less than 30% had received training on using the SWIS reports. The elementary and the intermediate teachers have a higher percentage using CHAMPs while the majority of the high school teachers do not. The majority of the teachers indicate there has been no change in student behavior. For any form of RTI including CHAMPs to succeed, it requires administrative support, fidelity, training, accountability, and a communication with a common vocabulary. The data of this study indicates that more training should occur in understanding RTI, implementing CHAMPs and using SWIS referral forms.
