Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)

PBISAz award winner logo.

The Florence Unified School District (FUSD) uses a grant provided by ADE (Arizona Department of Education) to fund and operate the FUSD PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) Program. This program uses positive reinforcement to encourage desired behaviors in our students.

By rewarding positive decisions instead of only punishing poor decisions, we are able to support and encourage students who make positive choices while also showing all students that doing the right thing is something that should be celebrated. Students are given prizes and entered into drawings based on their ability to earn "caught in the act" tickets.

This program has revolutionized the way we do discipline and has had a positive impact on students who might need more help with behavioral norms.
