The Oriole Way...What is it?

The Oriole Way is a management system, also know as PBIS. It is a proactive school district behavior management system that consistently teaches, models, and reinforces, the behavioral expectations to be ready, respectful and safe.

Research has shown that it is effective in reducing discipline problems, increasing instruction time, and creating safer and more positive environments in our schools, homes, and community.


Throughout the common area of the school and in all classrooms are matrices and reminders. These reminders are post to let the students know what is expected of them while in these areas.



When students choose not to follow the expectations of The Oriole Way, 1 of two things will happen. The student will either have a minor(classroom managed) or major(office managed) form filled out.
