Build School Practice

In our focus group discussions with students, parents, and educators, we heard countless examples about the ways that schools are fostering restorative justice and healing-centered practices–and many ideas about how to strengthen the work going forward. Check out this downloadable guide to learn about our recommendations for school practices that support and sustain restorative and healing-centered school cultures.

Wherever you are in your journey of building restorative and healing practices, we hope these recommendations can be a source of support, confidence, and optimism in moving forward with specific, practical next steps in your school, and across New York City. As always, we encourage you to adapt these strategies to fit the specific needs, strengths, and character of your school–and to consider these recommendations alongside our broader policy demands, which are essential for the kind of transformational change we want to see.
