Restorative Practices within MTSS
October 23 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm$165
For over a decade, Vermont schools have been building a multi-tiered system of supports framework for social and academic achievement. Recently, there has been a surge of interest around the use of restorative approaches nationally and in Vermont schools. A restorative approach involves principle-based processes and practices that can be applied to help things go right as well as respond when things go wrong. This whole-school approach links well within the Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) framework. This workshop will serve as an introduction to aligning PBIS with Restorative Practices. Participants will recall their current understanding of key elements of restorative approaches and PBIS; deepen their understanding of restorative practices at all three tiers; learn when and when not to use restorative practices; and learn how to apply a restorative approach to their existing PBIS framework. Fidelity and outcomes measures will be explored.
Who should attend? VTPBIS Leadership Teams including school administrators and PBIS Coordinators at the school and/or SU/SD level
