Let’s Talk and Work on Restorative Justice Practices 


On October 11th over 60 people came together to learn about Restorative Justice Practices (RJP) at the San Mateo County Office’s annual Respect 24/7 Conference. This year’s conference highlighted various strategies that school districts are using to support implementation of RJP from building staff capacity to practice mindfulness in their classrooms to a school that has trained all teachers in how to conduct circles and restorative conversations and all students participate in circles. The presenters highlighted the positive results emerging from the implementation of these strategies such as increased student engagement with their peers and staff and reduced student infractions, including less fighting.
