5. Restorative Justice Practices (3 part webinar series)

Program: Comprehensive System of Personnel Development

Dates: 1/13/2021 to 1/20/2021

Restorative practices help build community, celebrate accomplishments, transform conflict, rebuild relationships that have been harmed, and reintegrate students who have been suspended or expelled. Both the theory and practice of Restorative Justice emphasize identifying harm, involving all stakeholders, and true accountability- repairing harm and addressing its causes. A restorative model aligns with the multi-tiered framework of PBIS and is at the heart, a prevention-based approach. In this workshop we will explore the Tier I preventative practices that serve as the foundation to this work followed by the higher-level Tier II practices that dig into repairing and restoring harm that has been caused.
