Wednesday, May 1

1:30pm-3:00pm (lunch served at 1:15pm)

Audience: All Staff

Restorative practices have the potential to transform schools by creating communities of belonging in classrooms and throughout school buildings. Instead of merely adopting a new discipline framework, restorative practices encourage schools to think beyond responding to student behaviors to creating a school culture focused on repairing relationships when harm has occurred. Through this interactive workshop, participants will gain an understanding of the historical roots of restorative practices, the underlying framework, and the continuum of restorative practices. Topics will include understanding the role of shame in student behavior, the social discipline window, and how Scripture informs restorative practices.
