University Prep Schools District
Detroit, MI
“U Prep Schools is excited and prepared to become a fully restorative network. U Prep Schools is comprised of approximately 5000 students, 10 schools and 3 districts. The grant project will help the district to actively work against the school-to-prison pipeline by ending inequitable disciplinary actions while strengthening the ideal of community within U Prep Schools. Grant dollars are proposed for professional development, training of trainers and costs associated with the peer restorative practices pilot.”
