Negative and anti-social student behaviors continue to take time and resources away from the important mission of teaching and learning. Whether the conflict is student to student, student to staff, or parent to staff, a restorative approach encourages reflection and personal accountability. Through the use of restorative practices, this professional development will provide the opportunity for participants to gain the knowledge and the skills in:

  1. Differentiating between traditional and restorative discipline and applying the principles of restorative practices to build and maintain relationships between students and staff
  2. Understanding how to facilitate student/teacher conferences, informal classroom meetings, formal classroom meetings, victim/offender dialogue, and high stakes conferences
  3. Understanding the impact of expectations and procedures on a restorative school environment
  4. Identifying the types of behaviors that de-escalate aggressive behaviors
  5. Building relationships that support civility and mutual respect in the classroom, on the playground, and throughout the school community
