Restorative Practices Now More Important than Ever
With the majority of schools in San Mateo County continuing with online learning due to COVID-19, students have fewer opportunities to interact with their friends and classmates. This isolation can be difficult for children and their families and the toll on mental health continues to grow. While schools are implementing remote learning, they can look to Restorative Practices as a tool to increase students’ connectedness. The San Mateo County Office of Education and Get Healthy SMC have a number of resources, including professional development opportunities for educators so that they can be better equipped to support students.
