In-Person April Community of Practice: Youth Led Conflict Resolution Restorative Practices
April 13at9:30 am - 11:00 am
Youth-Led Conflict Resolution Restorative Practices
Location: 1050 First Street NE, Washington, DC 20002, OSSE, Room 108
Join this Community of Practice session on Youth-Led Conflict Resolution Restorative Practices! We will consider the question: How could student facilitated conflict resolution processes mitigate the impact of school community-based violence? Participants will consider how equitable collaboration between students and adults can provide students with opportunities to play ongoing and active roles in discipline procedures, build conflict resolution and problem solving skills, and enhance student accountability to the school community.
- What role could students have in the implementation of restorative discipline processes in your school?
- How could student participation in restorative discipline processes affect school climate and culture?
- What are some of the unique challenges that educators and students are facing regarding student behavior?
Throughout the session, practitioners will be able to learn how school staff and students implement restorative practices in their roles and school processes. This will be a time of sharing, learning, and collaboration.
These one-hour sessions will be co-facilitated by RestorativeDC staff school partners with expertise in restorative justice, social-emotional learning, mental health, and Multi-Tiered System of Support. Session activities will include self-guided circles, deep dives into hot topics, and practical exercises to strengthen participants’ restorative skills.
This in-person session will be held at the Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) located at 1050 First Street NE, Washington, DC 20002. Parking is available near the office. Metro stops near OSSE on the Red Line are Union Station and NoMa / Gallaudet University.
