Cassie K. Restorative Practice Coordinator

Cassie is the Restorative Practices Coordinator at MARS. She oversees our juvenile diversion program, facilitates restorative conferences, and provides training, coaching, and assists in the implementation of restorative practices in Anoka County schools. Cassie recognizes the impact a punitive and inequitable education & justice system can have on youth and how a restorative approach to discipline encourages accountability and repair and empowers individuals to pursue and accomplish their goals.
