ACTIONS is a program created by the Champaign Unit 4 school district that strives to support students by providing instruction during days of suspension. ACTIONS’ staff includes certified teachers who specialize in social-emotional instruction. Students who have been suspended for a period of 1-10 days for offenses in which expulsion is not being pursued are asked to participate in The ACTIONS Program during the time of their suspension.

The ACTIONS program is held at 402 N. Randolph where education in social skill instruction and academic course material takes place. The curriculum is designed to help students develop social skills that will allow them to navigate their school community and emotions effectively in order to promote maximum academic achievement. The school day begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 3 p.m. Academic assignments are sent to ACTIONS by the student’s home school teachers in order to allow students to remain on track in classes and eliminate academic frustration upon return to school that can further trigger unwanted behavior.

In addition to providing instruction during suspensions, ACTIONS staff work proactively with students at-risk of being suspended and follow-up with students after suspension. They visit schools to teach and encourage positive behavior and provide social skill instruction in the home school environment. Staff also partner with community agencies to complete referrals for students who are in need of additional services.


Pros of attending ACTIONS:

  • Counts as a day of attendance
  • Students are able to keep up with their school work
  • Students are taught social emotional skills
  • Program offers conflict resolution ideas
  • Support from ACTIONS staff throughout the year
