Implementing Restorative Practices within an MTSS Framework

Ali Hearn
Presenter(s): Ali Hearn

Restorative Practices can help build and strengthen relationships and restore and repair harm. When implementing these and other practices in schools, the creation of systems for installation and the monitoring of fidelity and intended outcomes are often overlooked as priorities. An MTSS framework provides a process for installing and sustaining practices and decision-making systems that strengthen environments and help achieve desired outcomes. This session is for those new to Restorative Practices or new to the idea of installing them within a Multi-Tiered System of Supports framework. The session will explore basic theories of Restorative Practices, basic principles of an MTSS framework and considerations for the alignment of the two.

Learning Intention(s):

1. Participants will increase their knowledge of the theories behind Restorative Practices
2. Participants will gain a better understanding of the critical features of an MTSS Model (specifically Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)
3. Participants will be able to explain the importance of using a Multi-Tiered System of Supports framework for the successful installation of Restorative Practices
