Desert Trails Elementary cares about providing a positive and safe learning environment for our students and community. The PBISAz Achievement Award recognizes schools for successful implementation and outcomes with school-wide systems of Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS). Award criteria required high scores on national fidelity and integrity assessments AND measurable student outcome data.

Principal Sarah Torrilhon notes that this award recognizes the dedication of school staff and our community to uphold our school expectations every day: DTES Hawks S.O.A.R. - We are Safe, Open-Minded, Always Kind, and Responsible. Together, we are building a school culture that is more positive, proactive, and supportive for all our students so that they can be successful citizens and leaders of our nation. Our award will proudly be displayed in our school office and on our website.
