Supporting Restorative Practices in South San Francisco Schools

Educational attainment is closely tied to school attendance. When students are suspended or expelled from school for disciplinary reasons, they are less likely to complete school and are more likely to become engaged in the juvenile justice system. The Young Men’s Christian Association’s (YMCA) Youth Services Bureau (YSB) was awarded funding from the 2021 Get Healthy SMC Implementation Funds to support the South San Francisco School District with offering middle and high school students alternatives to suspension.
