• Restorative Practices

    Although student misbehavior impacts many people at school, often only the student is involved in the discipline process. The restorative practices approach stresses correcting the harm rather than punishing the deed, and advocates including the affected parties in the process.

    Here is a sample of Restorative Questions that may be asked in response to a student exhibiting challenging behavior:
    • What happened?
    • What were you thinking of at that time?
    • What have you though about since?
    • Who has been affected by what you have done?  In what way?
    • What do you think you need to do to make things right?
    Here is a sample of Restorative Questions that may be asked to help those harmed by others' actions:
