What is Restorative Justice?
Restorative Justice in schools uses the tool of dialogue in circles to build community, prevent conflict and respond to disciplinary incidents. Restorative Justice in schools is rooted in a culture shift away from zero-tolerance policies and disproportionately punitive disciplinary models.
The 2-day Tier 1: Community Building Training offers in-depth training and coaching in using circle to build community & create positive relationships amongst adults and with youth.
