Professional Learning Communities

An intensive online experience designed for teachers, school counselors and paraprofessionals who have participated in Basic Restorative Practices* professional development. The essential theme of this learning can be customized, based on school/school board priorities. We have developed and delivered learning experiences focused on RP implementation planning at the school level; re-entry post COVID 19 planning and putting theory into practice for school leaders. However, the design of the learning experience – seven live sessions over six weeks that engage participants in opportunities to practice the full range of restorative practices, learn from fellow practitioners and deepen their professional practice – can be successfully applied to site specific restorative practices goal
