Restorative Justice is focused on the belief that those individuals causing harm can work together with those affected by the harm to repair it and that this collaboration leads to true accountability. A restorative approach brings awareness that misconduct is part of the developmental process of every young person. Corrective responses to misconduct using punishment can actually increase the likelihood that the misbehavior will re-occur. Both the theory and practice of Restorative Justice emphasize: (1) identifying the harm, (2) involving all stakeholders, and (3) true accountability— repairing the harm and addressing its causes. Restorative Justice and restorative practices applied in our schools reflects an approach to wrongdoing and harmful behavior that aims to both prevent wrongdoing at all levels and intervene in offending behavior. Restorative practices help to build community, celebrate accomplishments, transform conflict, rebuild relationships that have been harmed, and reintegrate students who have been suspended or expelled. A restorative model fits well within the multi-tiered framework of Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) and is at the heart, a prevention based approach.

Getting Started With Tier 2 PBIS

Is your school ready to start implementing Tier 2 interventions and supports? This workshop is designed for schools actively implementing Tier 1 and thus builds off of the Tier 1 supports. Participants will learn the foundations of Tier 2 and some beginning interventions they can put in place to support students with mild­moderate behavioral support needs. Participants will learn about Tier 2 Teams, Identifying Students for Tier 2, Building Understanding of Behavior, Check-in and Check-Out Systems, Self-Monitoring, the School-Home Note Program and the Class Pass Intervention. Teams of at least 3 are encouraged to attend.

Building a Positive Classroom Community Through Restorative Justice and PBIS

Looking for more effective ways to build community and prevent behavior in classrooms? Restorative Justice practices and PBIS can be used in classrooms, to help create a culture of community and care. When we blend high structure with high support students feel connected to school and engaged in learning. Participants will learn how to build the needed classroom structures and supports through PBIS and how to nurture relationships and address classroom conflicts with Restorative Justice. Classroom meetings and circles focused on community building, dialoguing about academic content and handling minor conflicts will be demonstrated and practiced.

Presenters: Lori Lynass Ed.D and Bridget Walker, Ph.D,
