RESTORATIVE PRACTICES are a positive, disruptive force to realizing greater equity in education and stronger relationships. When implemented holistically, Restorative Practices help develop a culture where everyone’s voice is heard and valued and relationships become the cornerstone of the community. Instead of top-down punitive practices that further erode relationships, Restorative Practices put the emphasis on relationships, collaborative problem solving and collective responsibility.

Any school at any phase in the implementation of Restorative Practices. High school students can create an independent study and receive proficiency-based high school credits for their efforts. Adult team members can choose to enroll in a 3 graduate credit course or receive professional development hours toward recertification. Expectations for adult and youth participants remain the same regardless of the source of credit. Teams can consist of 2-4 adults and up to 6 youth partners.
