Dean of Discipline - Golder College Prep

II. 2018-19 Leadership Chicago, Illinois

Description

Golder College Prep opened its doors on August 20, 2007 to a freshman class of 155 students. Coupled with choices in electives and sports teams, GCP students have the option to take part in unique enrichment classes such as Health and Workout classes, Italian, Yoga, Chicago food and history, documentary films, Rock back, Piano, Guitar, Tae Kwon Do and Modern dance.

We believe in establishing and reinforcing an environment conducive to learning and optimizing the time our students have for academic and personal growth. Noble students arrive having a multitude of prior learning and home experiences. This presents both challenges and opportunities. While Noble has an established code of conduct from which all disciplinary actions stem, a person assuming the role of Dean of Discipline should be consistent in implementation of the code of conduct, while remaining creative in generating programs and processes that are tailored to the student population and the school community in which they serve.

The Dean of Discipline is responsible for leading a team of disciplinarians responsible for multiple tasks as related to maintaining student culture; they lay the vision for the pathway toward student development of behavioral and social norms that will lead to success in Noble and beyond. The Dean of Discipline is also responsible for maintaining and building relationships with students deemed most “at-risk” and their families, along with the development of community partnerships that may provide alternative strategies for student growth and development. The Dean of Discipline will communicate and collaborate with school leadership to ensure alignment of overall vision. Experience working with students in educational environments is not required, but is preferred.
