Restorative Practices

Restorative Practices provide intervention, accountability, and support to students who commit a misdemeanor offense or receive a disciplinary action for their conduct at school. This program focuses on bringing together the offender and those negatively affected by his or her actions and supporting them in working together to determine a sanction for the offending student, helping the offender understand how his or her actions affected others, and helping the offender reintegrate back into the classroom and school community in a positive and supportive way. Restorative Circles is part of this practice, bringing all involved, along with the offender’s parent, together to resolve the conflict. Sanctions may include letters of apology, community service, maintaining grades and school attendance, or restitution, depending on the type of offense. Student offenders have a set time period to complete the agreed upon sanctions and not face a potential referral to Juvenile Court. Restorative Practices are also used in the school throughout the school day to help students resolve minor disagreements and challenges, focusing in building interpersonal skills and resolving conflict collaboratively. It is designed to strengthen the school community by providing opportunities to learn from negative situations and build strong interpersonal communication skills the student can use in the course of his or her ongoing daily interactions with others both inside and outside of the classroom.
