Restorative Schools


A school can be a place of healing. A school can be a place of justice.

Restorative Practice in schools can help us to reduce disparities in learning, foster a joyful community, and vastly decrease the chances of students reaching the criminal justice system as adolescents and adults. We view school change through trauma-informed and equity lens as we take a systems approach to Restorative Schools. We will help you build a customized plan of training, coaching, policy change and leadership development to help your schools to be a place of healing and justice for every single person.

About Restorative Schools


“School-based restorative justice offers a more equitable and respectful alternative for dealing with disciplinary infractions, [and] it is also a proactive strategy to create a culture of connectivity where all members of the school community feel valued and thrive. Restorative justice is a profoundly relational practice….” From Oakland Unified School District Restorative Justice Implementation Guide: A Whole School Approach
