Restorative Practices

RP in Practice
  • Center for Safe and Secure Schools

    Continuum of Professional Development 

    At the Center, we are committed to providing research-driven and responsive professional development that aims to make an impact on teacher actions to influence student well-being and school safety. We support district and campus needs with training, resources, and feedback, all tailored for your unique community needs. Our focus at the Center is to offer a continuum of professional development offerings and resources to sustain restorative practices. Courses either deliver emotional safety prevention, with practices to build and maintain relationships and prevent conflict and harm or provide emotional safety responsiveness with practices to repair relationships, resolve conflict, and manage difficulties and disruptions. Take a peek at our offerings! All include actionable deliverables that provide educators with ready-to-go tools and strategies to implement on their campus.
