Restorative Practices

Why Restorative Practices?

The Restorative Practices model that Doug Fisher, Nancy Frey, and Dominique Smith have created provides a proactive approach to school climate, discipline, and student relationships. Their work also discusses the importance of equity and the role equity plays in every approach in a school setting, from attendance to engagement to discipline.

What You’ll Learn

  • Understand the rationale for restorative practices. Discuss and analyze restorative practices as a proactive approach to school climate, discipline, and relationships.

  • Understand and develop the key strategies to building relationships with students. Understand the power of a relationship (teacher- student relationships .48 and teacher credibility 1.09) and how that can foster a safe environment.

  • Discuss the importance of equity and how equity plays a role in every approach in a school setting from attendance to engagement to discipline. Look at data to make proper decisions for growth.

  • Restorative practices are not limited to discipline.  Introduce and define restorative grading and climate considerations.

Professional Learning Workshops

Your personalized Restorative Practices workshop with a certified consultant will support your individual school or district in understanding how restorative practices can be an alternative to punitive approaches to classroom management. These practices humanize the schooling experience and allow individuals who cause harm to make amends. Restorative practices rely on strong relationships as well as clear systems and procedures to ensure that harm is addressed. The impact is increased equity for BIPOC students as well as a reduction in exclusionary practices such as suspension and expulsion. But as importantly, students change their behavior as they come to understand the impact that they have on others.
