Rochester, NY
“'Project Restoration' is an innovative program that is intentionally designed to challenge and change our school's culture. Our students come from diverse backgrounds and Project Restoration addresses the needs of the individual first, followed by the family, then the community which is why Project Restoration is a three-tiered program. The first tier is student focused: Every classroom will be equipped with a teacher-designed calm down sensory corner to empower students to learn and implement self-regulation skills. The second tier is staff focused: We will provide four expert-led professional development seminars on Trauma-Informed Care and self care. The third tier is family focused: We will host three Restorative Family nights with a local expert providing tools and resources for families on how to best meet the needs of their child/children.”
