Restorative Justice Workshops in February and April

Restorative practices and restorative justice programs are now being implemented in nearly 100 MCPS schools across the county.

 

In short, restorative practices reflect a mindset and philosophy toward school climate and relationship building. It is a social justice platform that allows students to:

  • build community and self-care;
  • actively engage and problem-solve physical, psychological, social and disciplinary issues that affect their lives and community; and
  • take responsibility for their actions and work with those affected to restore the community and members who were harmed as a result of those actions. You can also find more information about the program here.

 

And this is the December newsletter 2018, which includes information about the first intra-county restorative justice student leadership coalition, which will meet for the first time on January 28th.

 

The MCPS Office of Student and Family Support and Engagement is offering a series of workshops for parents on restorative justice:

  • February 5th, 6:30-8:30 pm at Julius West Middle School
  • April 2nd, 6:30-8:30 pm at Loiderman Middle School.

 

This is exciting, cutting-edge work that supports students' holistic well-being and helps to build a positive school community. It's also an approach to communication and conflict that you may find helpful in your home and work environments.
