Introduction to Restorative Justice in Schools
through Resolutions Northwest, 2538 NE Broadway

Explore why and how Restorative Justice can be a promising alternative to exclusionary practices.

Monday and Tuesday, July 17th and 18th, from 9:00am – 4:00pm

“It was a great balance of circle, lecture, group work and movement. The topic had me 100% engaged.”

Restorative Justice is a valuable alternative to exclusionary practices. It seeks to restore community and repair harm while holding all involved accountable. Unacceptably high school push-out rates disproportionately affect students of color, students with disabilities and youth who identify as LGBT.

Restorative Justice is not a prescribed program but a philosophy based on community building and repairing harm. We will discuss the components that can make the approach successful such as circles, restorative inquiries and dialogues, community service and mediation. We look at possibilities for implementation that are open to classroom teachers and other school personnel. While doing so we will keep a keen eye on equity issues. The workshop will be a combination of lecture, discussions, videos and hands-on practice activities.

This training focuses on Restorative Justice in schools. We particularly invite and encourage school counselors, behavior specialists, administrators, teachers, security personnel, and those studying to work in schools.
