“Our project aims to increase social and emotional support and skill development for our at-risk English Learners by implementing culturally and linguistically responsive restorative justice practices schoolwide. As part of our project, staff and student leaders will receive intensive training in restorative justice to infuse these practices into classroom climates. We will then combine this new knowledge with our existing expertise in engaging ELs to: 1) create an EL Advisory Circle to teach and reinforce social and emotional skills in a safe space and 2) redesign our peer/student-teacher mediation protocols to promote accessibility and inclusiveness for our ELs.”
