Overview of Restorative Practices in Schools (Introductory)

Length: 45 Minutes

This is a perfect presentation for those new to restorative practices in schools. Zero tolerance and punishment that doesn’t work for many students has led to what’s now known as the school-to-prison pipeline. But there’s good news.

Modesto City Schools District’s LCAP (Local Control Accountability Plan) has included Restorative Practices as one alternative to decrease suspensions and improve school climate since 2013-2014. Restorative practices are described as holding students and staff accountable, and when necessary, making things as right as possible. Discover the paradigm shift from the traditional punitive approach to the restorative approach, principles of restorative practices and the restorative practices pyramid.

Learn how restorative practices are changing the lives of students and staff.
