Restorative Justice

Restorative Justice at Peary Middle School

 

The District adopted the School Climate Bill of Rights in May 2013 and committed to implementing Restorative Justice practices in all schools by 2020.  Restorative Justice emphasizes community building and commits to restoring relationships.  Restorative practices promote and strengthen positive school culture.  Moreover, pro-social relationships also improve within the school community.  

 

What is Restorative Justice?

Restorative Justice practices promote values and principles that use inclusive, collaborative practices for being in a community.  Restorative Justice helps schools create and maintain a positive school culture and climate.   Restorative Justice practices:

  • Build Community
  • Celebrate accomplishments
  • Intervene in offending behavior
  • Transforms conflict
  • Rebuild damaged relationships
  • Reintegrate students into the learning environment
