“Lincoln High School will utilize restorative practices to create a more cohesive and engaging learning environment for its high proportion of ELL students. This will include recruiting 20+ ELL students as peer mediators, as well as training for ELL teachers on the use of restorative circles in an academic setting so that they may begin and end each class with core discussion that will help students develop relationships and feel a sense of community and safety.”
