Restorative Practices


Restorative Practices are built on a framework and principles which focus on both community building and repairing harm in order to help students be their best. Restorative practices allow students to learn from mistakes and move forward in positive behaviors and relationships. Restorative and trauma-informed practices and social-emotional learning go hand-in-hand as students learn how to lead and work with others in their school communities.

Restorative Practices are based on principles and processes that emphasize positive relationships as central to building community and repairing relationships when harm has occurred.
