A restorative approach to discipline focuses on restoring the relationship between an offender and his/her community through collaboration and conversation. What we know about educators is that they care deeply about their students and their success. However, opening a conversation with at-risk students can be a struggle. In order to create lasting change in behavior, it is essential to allow students, at-risk and otherwise, to be part of the conversation. To be restorative, the conversation must be two-fold: first, all sides are heard and second, all sides work together to generate the best solution. The International Institute of Restorative Practices (IIRP) posits that people are happier, more likely to make positive changes in their behavior when those in positions of authority do things with them, rather than to them or for them (2023). In this workshop, we will explore barriers to open communication, and what unlocks conversation. We will examine how to use intervention data to drive the kinds of conversations that restore relationships, build trust, and strengthen school communities.
