Just Discipline Project
The project supports teachers, students, and staff in efforts to enhance relational approaches that ultimately reduce the need for exclusionary discipline in schools. We expect that decreases in school suspensions and increases in strong relationships will in tandem yield safer schools, improved academic outcomes, and reduced contact with criminal justice systems for youth.
Restorative Justice and culture-building programming started at WHIS in the spring of 2017 and has continued since that time. Evaluation of the work is ongoing.
