Thursday, March 11 Building a Student Support Network - 7-8:30pm

School safety and supporting students in staying connected with school and learning opportunities are integrally related. Restorative justice practices appear to be most promising for reducing school-wide reliance on suspension and expulsion, and for reducing racial/ethnic disparities in school discipline. By choosing a different course, all young people, including those most marginalized, can be safe and engaged in their schools and communities.
