Restorative Practices Forum - Administrators

Join us on a journey of two districts and their implementation of restorative practices. This is an opportunity for administrators to hear from other administrators, teachers, parents, and students about their restorative practices experiences. Come and see how they creatively and intentionally weave restorative practices into their district implementation plans, disciplinary policies, and practices. The districts will share their triumphs, struggles, strategies, and tools. Numerous resources will be shared.
