Event description

Description

In partnership the National Center for Restorative Justice, the Puget Sound Educational Service District, and Kent School District we are excited to announce and invite you to the 5th Puget Sound Restorative Justice Forum. We are building on our success from last year and will be offering a variety of workshops. In addition to our workshop the National Center for Restorative Justice will be bringing youth representing 4 school districts, so we will be able to close a previous gap in our workshops and panels. All are welcome to attend, educators and those passionate about learning more are encouraged to attend.

Our morning will start by framing our work, with a focus in reducing disproportionality in discipline and building equity capacity among adults. We seek to develop the attitudes, beliefs, and practices of our community.

Our break out sessions will include

- Restorative Justice 101 - An introduction to philosophy and classroom practices and it's alignment with Equity, MTSS and Trauma informed practice.

- Group Author Conferencing - Lead by Student Interns from the NC4RJ. This is one process that can be used afterschool that captures many of the principles, engages low level harm, and maximizes capacity of facilitators.

- Readiness Tool - The PSESD will be introducing their collaborative project to help District understand when and how they'll be ready to introduce Restorative Justice into their schools/district.

- Restorative Justice for Families - Kent School Dirstrct in partnership with the NC4RJ will be offering the very first Restorative Justice for Families this winter. This will be both in introducation and offer participants some take away skills.

- Equity for the Classroom - The PSESD will present a deeper dive into Equity in the classroom. How you can use RJ to have hard conversations without having all the answers.


We will conclude with a panel discussion with Teachers, Students, and Principals about their Restorative Justice successes and challenges.
