Restorative Practices Academy

This four-part cohort based academy takes schools invested in school culture to the next level of Restorative Practices. Learn from local administrators and national leaders who are successfully leading this movement within their schools.

Sessions are held at different sites and provides time to assess, plan and practice. Leave with an 3-year action plan to weave Restorative Practices into the fabric of school life and the protocols of discipline and re-entry.

Administrators must attend with teams and Superintendents must understand and support the commitment to this Academy and its practices. These conditions are a prerequisite for the Academy.
