Restorative Justice in Schools

What is Restorative Justice?

Restorative Justice in schools is a set of principles and practices that supports teachers, students and families in building relationships, strengthening community and repairing relationships and community after harm.

Why Restorative Justice?

Results from practicing restorative justice can include improved school climate; significantly lower referrals, suspensions, and expulsions; and higher attendance and graduation rates.

How Can I Implement Restorative Justice in my School?

Whole School Implementation is system-wide approach for integrating restorative justice principles and practices into school culture and discipline. Resolve provides schools with training, consultation, and coaching.
