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 demonstrating PBIS behavior are recognized and celebrated throughout the year.

Carminati received the 2017 Merit Award from the PBISaz Achievement Awards.


Implementing PBIS has made a significant impact on the already positive and upbeat attitude of Carminati Elementary School. Students and staff have become “Bucketfillers” as well as demonstrating the expectations of Safety, Responsibility and Respect. Focusing on positive behaviors has lifted spirits and helped redirect problem behaviors. For more detail, please visit
