Susan Villani & Susan Henry; Center for Education Equity at MAEC
This guide is designed to help school leaders and educators use restorative approaches to build relationships and address conflict. These practices help facilitate community building and address infractions, enabling students to take responsibility for their actions and repair harm when possible.
The authors compiled additional resources from several organizations and school districts at the forefront of using restorative practices in schools. The contributing organizations include the Oakland and San Francisco Unified School Districts in California, Restorative Justice 4 Schools Ltd (UK), the Center for Restorative Process, and Public Counsel Law Center’s publication, Fix School Discipline. These resources are provided at the end of this guide.
