Trauma Informed Care and SEL (Social Emotional Learning)

For students who need additional support to develop social emotional skills and competencies we provide tiered supports for students and families. Parents, teachers, students, administration and support staff work to determine the needs of the child together. As a team, we determine what skills to focus on and strategies that will be used to meet the student's needs. We celebrate with students and families when these social emotional skills have been learned and the student can enjoy better and healthier relationships with their peers and family.

LHS Resources

The Genders and Sexualities Alliance (GSA) is an organization of clubs, located primarily in high schools, that serves students who identify as LGBTQ2SIA+.  La Grande High School has had an active GSA (formerly Gay-Straight Alliance) since the spring of 2013, when it was created out of the need for every LHS student to have a space where they felt comfortable and affirmed.

Founded in San Francisco in 1998, GSA Network emerged as a youth-driven organization that connects LGBTQ+ youth and school-based GSA clubs through peer support, leadership development, and community organizing and advocacy. Our youth leadership development model supports youth in starting, strengthening and sustaining GSA clubs to create school communities where all students can be safe from discrimination, harassment, and violence based on their sexual orientation or gender identity. GSA organizing rapidly expanded into a national youth organizing movement that now works at the intersection of racial and gender justice. - GSA Network Website
