Restorative Practices

Restorative practices is a framework that emphasizes the importance of  building community and developing healthy positive relationships.  It also involves restoring relationships when harm occurs.

When consistently implemented, restorative practices will strengthen positive school culture and climate, build strong relationships, and grow community.  Students and staff recognize their role in maintaining safe and healthy school environments.  Students are held accountable for their actions while providing them with a high level of support where they learn to accept responsibility and repair the harm their actions caused. Restorative practices cultivate a culture of inclusivity, build fair processes into decision-making practices and provide a sense safety and support for the school community.

Sweetwater Union High School District is committed to working with all stakeholders to create and sustain a positive school culture and climate adopting a framework that is inclusive of research-based principles and practices aimed at building equitable and transformational school communities, caring relationships and creating socially and emotionally healthy environments where students, families and staff can thrive and reach their full potential.
