Restorative Action Plan (RAP©) for Individual Students

Event Date/Time: 
Wednesday, December 12, 2018 - 9:00am - 3:30pm

A series of revisions to Michigan’s Zero Tolerance laws took effect on August 1, 2017. The law now requires that schools consider using Restorative Practices in addition to or in place of suspension or expulsion. The new law defines Restorative Practices as "practices that emphasize repairing the harm to the victim and the school community caused by a pupil's misconduct."

But what does it mean to "consider" using Restorative Practices and how should you document that consideration?

In this one-day training session, participants learn to follow a step-by-step documentation process to demonstrate the consideration of restorative practices before suspension. The session includes guided support in constructing/establishing a local discipline flowchart, referral protocol and forms and the use of in-school suspension/responsible thinking room.

Participants leave with an understanding and the skills to analyze serious behavior issues using restorative practices methods, interview stakeholders, conference with offenders and willing victims, and develop restorative action plans.

Created and presented by Roy Burton, Founder and President of Michigan Restorative Practices Trainers & Consultants (MIRPTC) in partnership with MASSP
