Connecting Resources

Connecting resources provide information and activities that are complementary and aligned with the work of the Kansas MTSS Project.

CHAMPS & Discipline in the Secondary Classroom (DSC): The integrated nature of Kansas MTSS relies on districts and schools providing a system component to support positive classroom management. The Kansas CHAMPS/DSC cadre provides training in the implementation of positive behavior supports as part of classroom management across grade levels. This link provides access to information about how to obtain CHAMPS/DSC training. CHAMPS/DSC are products of Safe & Civil Schools and Dr. Randy Sprick. 

Infinitec: Kansas MTSS relies on districts and schools providing a system component to ensure every student can access evidence-based instruction. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and Assistive Technology (AT) may be needed to address the needs of every student. The Kansas Infinitec project provides educators in Kansas with access to resources, information, and training on state of the art AT and UDL.
