Oakland Mills High School PBISScorpion Code of Conduct
The SIR (Staff Incident Report)
The main focus of OMHS PBIS is to create a more positive learning environment by empowering students and staff with a clear system for all expected behaviors at OMHS. Through PBIS we will work to maintain a productive, safe environment in which ALL school community members have clear expectations and understandings of their roles in the educational process.
Scorpion Code of Conduct
Scorp Merits are given to students when they do something that demonstrates Respect, Responsibility, and Readiness. Scorp Merits can be used to purchase tickets to athletic events, enter raffles, purchase items at the Scorp Merit Store, and earn other privileges throughout the school year.
Staff Incident Reports (SIRs) are given to students when they do not demonstrate Respect, Responsibility, and Readiness. SIRs are an opportunity for students to change a behavior before an office referral becomes necessary. Students will sign the SIR to acknowledge that they understand what they did wrong, and the staff person will contact the studentís parent or guardian and assign an appropriate consequence. Refusing to sign an SIR may result in an office referral. After two SIRs for a similar offense, the third offense will result in an office referral. Office referrals will also be used for certain major offenses such as fighting, abusive/threatening language, cutting class, possession or use of drugs/alcohol/weapons, and failing to give a studentís name to any staff person when requested.
