About the Deans' Office

  • The Deans' Office is committed to promoting a safe learning environment for students and staff at Evanston Township High School. The Deans oversee the school's discipline code which promotes mutual respect among students and staff and protects the rights of all individuals to pursue their education. In accordance with ETHS’s equity and vision statements, ETHS students and staff commit to the following core beliefs about discipline. Discipline at ETHS:

    • ensures the right of all students to learn in a safe environment;
    • primarily uses consistent, schoolwide prevention and intervention, focusing on instruction and restorative practices;
    • promotes a shared responsibility throughout the school for problem-solving by all students and staff;
    • acknowledges and honors individual student’s identities and developmental needs;
    • seeks to model, teach, and reinforce students’ and adults’ social-emotional skills (i.e., self-management, self-awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision making) and;
    • involves a cooperative and collaborative effort among students, parents/guardians, and staff.

    The Deans’ office engages in preventative problem solving with students to guide each student's social and emotional learning. The Deans utilize interventions and skill building opportunities to ensure that every student has a voice in any situation of wrong doing and can use critical thinking skills to make positive decisions.
