Restorative Discipline Practices (RDP) Forum

Traditionally, exclusionary practices such as suspension and expulsion, have been utilized to address disciplinary issues in schools. These practices have been proven to negatively impact student achievement and social-emotional learning. In addition, exclusionary practices adversely influence school culture and climate.

Due to the need for alternatives to suspension and expulsion, the use of restorative discipline practices and strategies are spreading across the field of education at the state and national levels. Restorative discipline focuses on developing relationships, strengthening relationships, repairing harm, and increasing accountability.

Join us for a one-day symposium with state and national experts as we 1) Explore alternatives to exclusionary discipline practices and improve relationships, 2) Learn about the implementation and evaluation of restorative discipline practices, and 3) Learn ways to integrate restorative discipline into a multi-tiered system of support.
