• Benjamin Franklin Elementary School uses Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) and Restorative Justice


    • PBIS is a systems approach to establishing the behavioral supports and social culture needed for all students in a school to achieve social, emotional, and academic success.
    • PBIS applies a three-tiered system of support and problem-solving process to enhance the capacity of schools to effectively educate all students.

    Clear expectations for behavior are taught, modeled, and reinforced across all school settings and by all staff which leads to a safe learning environment where teachers can teach and students can learn!


    At Franklin, there are 3 main student expectations:

    • Be Respectful
    • Be Responsible
    • Be Safe

     Students will learn how to demonstrate respectful, responsible and safe behavior in all school settings.


    Students will earn rewards for making positive choices with their behavior and for following the school expectations.  There will also be consequences for students who choose not to follow the expectations and make poor choices regarding their behavior.
