- Scott County School District Restorative Practices in Schools Orientation
March 30, 2021
9:30 am - 11:00 am
This orientation is only for Scott County School Districts. Restorative Justice Practices (RJP) in Schools are a set of values, principles and practices which are centered in building a safe community for all stakeholders and provide structured opportunities for youth to take accountability for and repair harms from school discipline incidents or the crimes they have committed. Join us for an opportunity to learn about applications of Restorative Justice (RJ) across the spectrum of prevention to intervention in your own and other schools and Districts in the country, and data that shows it works. Discover what it takes to implement Restorative Justice Practices with both sustainability and fidelity. Hear and discuss the direct impact of RJP on disrupting the school to Prison Pipeline by dedicating resources upstream. See how Restorative Practices, rooted in trauma-informed care and a commitment to equity can significantly decrease the need for exclusionary discipline.
Get your questions answered on how capacity building for RJP with training and implementation strategic planning in your School District can help build school communities that foster a genuine sense safety, belonging and inclusion that is critical to a productive learning environment.
Scott County School Districts or Schools who are interested in exploring Restorative Practices further following this event, will have the opportunity for a one-on-one consultation with the presenter to discuss the implementation process. Summer 2021 Restorative Practices in Schools Training Institute Scholarships will be offered to those schools who are ready to take the next step.
