So, we’re not so good at posting news yet but we’ve been busy nonetheless.
Our training in Delaware was very successful. We trained the whole staff of the Kent County Alternative School along with a handful of other staff from nearby schools. Looks like the training has generated interest in the state and the Delaware Department of Education.
We encourage schools to take their time implementing restorative practices as it takes time to learn, practice, adjust and then fit it in to current practices. Small steps and small successes are good.
Last year, we also trained schools in Riverton, Wyoming. It is fascinating bringing this work into an Indian Reservation where there are deep roots of indigenous justice along with painful history of oppression. The school staff are amazing in their knowledge and commitment to their efforts. We hope to continue to work with them over the years.
We’ve also been hard at work revising our training manuals. We do this work whenever we can and are happy to fit more school trainings in up to a point. Please don’t hesitate to contact us.
