Iterate and Reiterate

Remember: Restorative Justice works best when it's an ongoing collaboration. The more voices considered in the plan, the more resilient implementation will be. Hover over the boxes for more info.

ACTION
Plan

Now that the teams have been trained and the stakeholders won’t be surprised, you’re ready to release your action plan. How will bad behavior be addressed? When will you use circles? When will you use conferences? How will you get feedback? Make it all as clear as possible.

DO THE
Thing

Work your action plan for at least two years. Research shows many cultural shifts take three to five years to become evident. Adjust for your community as you go. Every school is unique, and Restorative Justice should meet the needs of the school.

DO IT
Again

Create a new action plan every couple of years. Keep what's working. Drop what's not working. The important thing is to use Restorative Justice principles to resolve harm and build trust and relationships within the school community.
