In a recent statewide survey of SAANYS school leaders, an alarming 86 percent of respondents reported an increase in student behavioral issues this year. There is a widespread sense that the old system of traditional rewards and consequences doesn’t work anymore, but the need to build understanding and our own capacity around new approaches has not kept pace with increased concerns. This interactive workshop will focus on learning more about restorative practices in ways that can be shared and implemented over the next year in school communities.

“Inspiring, poignant, and motivational!”
“BRING HIM BACK!”
