Congratulations to all PBIS schools who entered the PBISaz Film Festival!

The volume and quality of PBIS films increases with each passing year. This year, the Film Festival Review Committee had numerous amazing videos to preview and choose from. Schools representing the K-12 spectrum from across AZ and out of state showcased a brilliant diversity of ideas, approaches and talent to share different aspects of PBIS with their audience. The creativity of the entries made us all jealous and ready to jump in and make videos for our school to enter in next year’s competition.

Criteria for the PBISaz Film Festival aligned with the International Association for Positive Behavior Support standards – so we encourage all schools to enter their videos into that competition before January 19, 2018.
