Restorative Justice

At Edna Brewer, Restorative Justice (RJ) is a set of principles and practices inspired by indigenous values used to build community, respond to harm/conflict and provide individual circles of support for students. By building, maintaining and restoring relationships between members of the entire school community, we help to create an environment where all students can thrive. Our program is implemented through a 3-tier, school-wide model.

It is important to understand that implementing restorative justice is primarily about building and maintaining community. We then use that foundation of community to respond to harm and conflict.  Long term cultural transformation is our goal. That starts with community! Once a restorative culture is created in a school, the focus can shift to responding to harm using RJ processes.
