Student Behavior at Centralia High School

Student Discipline at CHS

The Growth Opportunity Center (GO Center) is housed in portable 7A and will deal with all disciplinary, emotional, and student needs. The GOC is a new addition to CHS with the intent offering a place for students to understand their own behaviors, which disrupt the learning environment on and off campus. Here they will work with our Dean of Students to understand what is needed, for example, to repair with a staff or student after being removed from class for disruption or hurting someone. The GOC’s intent is of a positive approach to understanding why certain behaviors occur and how to stop them from happening in the future.

Accountability and ownership of misbehavior is a must and will require repair between the parties involved. Parents, counselors, teachers, and others may be involved with this repair. The GOC, and CHS, will be using Restorative Practices (RP) in this positive approach to correcting student misbehavior. You can read more about RP (a subcomponent of Restorative Justice) here.

On another note, the following will help make learning easier:

  • Be in your seat when the bell rings and begin working on the bell work assignment.
  • Your bag and/or purse should be under your chair.
  • Taking Notes: If it is written on the board it should be written in your notes!
  • There are two restroom passes per class per semester unless it is a true emergency. Go during the passing period or lunch!
  • The bell does not dismiss class, the teacher does!
  • No lining up at the door at the end of the period.
  • Come to class with a positive attitude (it is a choice)
  • Be in the room when the bell rings
  • RESPECT (your fellow students, the teacher, yourself and the class equipment & furniture)
  • No food or soda in class! (Bottled water is okay)
  • Do not talk while someone else is talking
