At The Juniper School, we use Restorative Justice Practices as part of our school community and culture. Our classrooms incorporate connection circles and peacemaking circles into their daily routine. Using Restorative Justice Practices helps us balance all parts of who we are as people.
The Restorative Approach supports relationship building and problem-solving. We do this by:
- Developing a plan of action
- Getting acquainted
- Addressing issues and visions
- Building understanding and Trust
Our Multi-Tiered System of Supports incorporates Restorative Justice as the first choice for resolution of conflicts and behavioral challenges. RT shapes our MTSS process, including Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 behavior interventions.
