  • Facilitation of restorative processes when harm occurs
  • Individual and team coaching on restorative practices
  • Collaboration on equity initiatives
  • Guidance on school-wide restorative implementation

We have partnered with LRC … to create safety and inclusion for all members of our school communities, particularly those who are minimalized and excluded. Restorative practices help us to do that by focusing on relationships and practicing safe ways to have difficult conversations.
