“Murray is a Restorative Practices pilot site, and we will be using Restorative Practices Circles to bring the SEL conversation to the students. Our particular approach is centered around daily Foundations circles where we develop pro-social skills and stronger communities, where all voices are invited to take part in creating the community. The project seeks to provide in-depth and on-going professional development on the theory and practice of bringing SEL to the staff. We are fortunate to be in close proximity to the University of Minnesota, which provides several learning opportunities per year, as well as offering on-site workshops.”
