Community of Practice: Transitioning to a Restorative Culture
February 15at9:30 am - 11:00 am
As we head into the winter break, are you having difficulty maintaining a restorative mindset as you navigate recurring challenges and finish this year’s first semester of full in-person learning? As school communities deal with fatigue and continued uncertainty, integrating restorative practices into every aspect of school life is essential in transitioning to and sustaining a restorative culture. A barrier that often hinders schools from having the restorative climate and culture that they aspire to is the lack of clear norms and expectations about proactive, preventative and responsive restorative practices.
- Why is it important for schools to regularly utilize the spectrum of restorative approaches: proactive, preventative, and responsive?
- What proactive, preventative and responsive restorative practices are already in place in your school community? What processes are being practiced with fidelity?
- What are the skills and daily routines needed to create clear norms and expectations around restorative practices?
- What creative strategies does your school have in place to deal with the challenge of having time to implement daily restorative practices?
This Community of Practice will provide participants with an opportunity to share personal success stories and identify proactive, preventative, and responsive processes that support accountability while creating a climate of empathy, compassion, and connection.
