Restorative practices provide a proactive systematic approach for schools to build a positive school culture that promotes School-Wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports. Restorative practices emphasize community building and commitment to restoring positive relationships. Restorative practices promote and strengthen positive school culture. It allows school staff to commit to the creation of an environment focused on instruction and positive behavioral support which leads to academic success for all students. School communities implement school-wide expectations and restorative practices in unison with stakeholder groups to ensure successful positive school climates, stronger school communities, productive interpersonal relationships, and tools to address student misconduct.
The District adopted the School Climate Bill of Rights in May 2013 and committed to implementing restorative practices in all schools by 2020.
