Student-led restorative practices are an effective and powerful way to incorporate restorative efforts into school culture. This workshop series provides participants with strategies to implement youth voice into their school restorative practices and policies.
Workshop 1: Harnessing Student Collaboration in Creating and Amending Discipline Policy. During this session, participants will understand the importance of student collaboration, as well as practical tools and support for gaining student input, in the creation and ongoing amendment of school discipline policy.
Workshop 2: Harnessing Student Collaboration in Discipline Implementation. Using alternative discipline models from around the country, workshop participants will survey practical ways for students to assist in discipline implementation. Participants will survey their current school discipline policy and procedures for potential student collaboration opportunities.
School leaders and behavior support staff serving students in grades 6-12 in public and public charter schools in DC are invited to attend. Participants are encouraged, but not required, to attend both sessions.
