The Problem: How can school staff and teachers communicate their expectations to students quickly and consistently?
The Solution: One liners
One Liners are universal phrases used at Liberty Middle School to remind students of behavioral expectations while in school. Click on any of the quoted titles below to see a YouTube video of the one-liner in action.
“Get in, Get Out” means to use the bathroom for its intended purpose and move on.
“Right side” reminds the students to walk on the right side of the hall. This allows traffic to move smoothly throughout the school.
“The office needs you” is used when students are on their cell phones in school. Cell phones are not permitted to be used between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m.
“Walk and Talk” reminds the students that they can have a conversation while walking to class.

“Off and Away” reminds the students that hoods, hats, and headphones are not allowed at Liberty Middle School and must be put away immediately.
“Walking” reminds the students that they should walk and not run in the halls. It also tells students to stay on the right side of the hall as they walk through the building.
