Restorative Justice in Schools

We are working on having Restorative Justice in our school. We currently have students trained to facilitate circles with students to restore relationships when a problem has occurred. We believe in restorative justice and the leadership skills our student facilitators are learning. We believe the participants in Restorative Justice in Schools are becoming more engaged citizens that taken ownership of issues they are facing.

Update (April-26-11)

We are doing very well with RJ. We purchased an Ipad and we are using it to track our RJ circles and take videos to record the circles. We are able to track very good stats. Thank you so much for allowing us this opportunity!

Update (November-23-11)

Things are going very well with Restorative Justice in our school. We have produced a great manual and video with the help of the technology we purchased. We are using this video and manual to put in a provincial conference for Restorative Justice in April. Thank you so much for your support.
