Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS) are used to improve academic and behavioral outcomes, ensuring that all students have access to the most effective behavioral practices and interventions possible. PBIS provides a school wide framework for achieving these outcomes. PBIS is a decision making framework that guides selection, integration and implementation of the best evidence based behavioral practices and interventions for improving behavioral outcomes to ensure academic success in all students.  

Students exhibiting scholarly behavior by following our school rules earn Panther Paws, which are used to purchase items in the Panther store every Friday morning.  Our school rules are: 
             Be Safe                Be Respectful              Be Responsible           Be a Scholar!


Students demonstrating PBIS behavior are recognized and celebrated throughout the year.

Frank received the 2019 Merit Award from the PBISAz Achievement Awards!

The PBIS program at Frank Elementary School has helped increase student responsibility and decrease behavior referrals. The PBIS team, consisting of teachers from each grade level, specials teachers, counselor, and administration, meets monthly to discuss data and develop support plans for Tier II and Tier III students (suggest adding in above comment and add that you have all grade levels represented as well as counselor and administration so you are able to develop and talk about Tier II and Tier III students to provide more support).
