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. Come learn more about how to use PBIS in your school and district.

Social Emotional Learning (SEL) enables children and adults to manage and understand their emotions, set positive goals, build and maintain positive relationships and make responsible decisions. Through direct and indirect instruction, SEL in the classroom has been proven to help students learn better, perform better on tests and work in a more positive and collaborative manner with their peers. SEL skills in the classroom enable students to learn how to learn. This training outlines five different teaching strategies to build SEL skills through direct practice and discussion. By the end of the training, participants will better understand SEL skills and competencies and how to practice these skills in the classroom without an SEL curriculum.

Advanced Restorative Justice

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. This advanced course will provide tools to run circles to address serious behavior incidences and the re-entry process following a suspension or expulsion.
