Restorative Schools Initiative
The Restorative Schools Initiative trains and supports districts, schools, teachers, and educational personnel in restorative practices.
Restorative practices are the applications of restorative justice values in the educational context. These apply to disciplinary responses to behaviors as well as developing a restorative culture throughout the school.Join or Request a Training
