“Baker Middle School will develop and implement a restorative re-entry process for students who have been out of school due to exclusionary discipline. We anticipate this process will give students a voice in the corrective process, strengthen relationships, facilitate a higher level of engagement and accountability, decrease the incidence and duration of suspensions and expulsions and evolve the school culture to one in which all students can make mistakes and learn from those mistakes, consistently.”
