During the 2018-19 school year, OSSE will partner with Restorative DC, a project of SchoolTalk Inc., to convene a monthly Community of Practice (CoP). This CoP will discuss the implementation of Restorative Justice practices in District of Columbia schools, focusing on a particular topic each month. These practices center on building a safe and effective learning environment through positive relationships, connection, and accountability. Participants will have opportunities to engage with other educators for peer support and professional development, while experiencing how circles can be used to build community and resolve issues collectively.
The CoP is held on the second Tuesday of each month, from 9-11:30 a.m., and is open to LEAs that are currently implementing Restorative Justice practices or are interested in learning more about it. Regular attendance by at least one representative from each LEA is encouraged. The location rotates each month to a different school campus or library. Please view all dates, times, topics, and locations below.
