In-Person PD: Restorative Justice and Special Education
May 3at12:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Location: In-Person, OSSE, Eleanor Holmes Norton Room 110
Description: Target Audience: Administrators, School Staff, Teachers
Restorative justice is increasingly applied in schools worldwide to manage classrooms and create inclusive, socially connected, and supportive learning environments for every student, including those with disabilities.. Restorative practices help students develop self-advocacy and social-emotional skills at the same time they are building academic competencies. This experiential workshop will help teachers, administrators, and special education staff explore the needs of students with disabilities, identify restorative applications for supporting students with disabilities and their families, and accommodate differences when circle-keeping.
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.
