Implementation Guide Ready for Schools

K thru 12

The NACRJ Board of Directors has approved guidelines for managing and implementing Restorative Practices in K-12 Education. This document offers essential elements of RPE and a basic implementation framework (e.g.Implementation Science and Multi-Tiered Systems of Support) for helping schools organize and develop their schoolwide plan. When developing an implementation plan, we encourage you to work with a diverse team of school community members, including students, and create opportunities to hear from the school-community at-large, thereby remaining true to the principles of RPE (relationships, healing harms, shared voice and power, equity, trauma-sensitivity), while valuing your school’s unique context and culture. A complete copy of the implementation guideline document is now posted on our website under the Policy section.
