Restorative Practices are an Indigenous equity-based, multi-tiered system of building, maintaining, and repairing relationships in our classrooms, schools, and community.
Restorative Practices proactively create community, honor student voice, and fulfill the strategic plan's goals to support each student's mental health and well-being.
Restorative Practices are a non-punitive approach to student misbehavior, which can reduce the harmful impact of traditional punitive discipline practices.
Based on the North Clackamas School District Strategic Plan, Restorative Practices are an essential component of every learning community because they address our district vision to “build relationships with students to honor their cultural heritage, foster their physical, social, and emotional well-being, cultivate joy in learning, and engage each student to reach their full potential.
In addition, we create environments where students are inspired to be creative and critical thinkers as they prepare for success in life, college, and career.”
