In response to new Maryland legislation supporting restorative approaches in k-12 public schools, this two-day workshop provides K-12 school leadership with an introduction to restorative approaches in an educational setting.

Event Details

A restorative approach focuses on proactive steps to build a positive school climate and engaged student learning. With a restorative approach, school personnel manage challenging behaviors using learning models of discipline. Workshop topics include: foundational concepts of a restorative approach; restorative skills and strategies; tools for designing, implementing and sustaining a restorative approach in your school; and emerging research on the impact of restorative approach in schools. This training focuses on the unique needs of school leadership interested in introducing, expanding or sustaining restorative practices in their school.
