Suspension and expulsions are poor solutions to improve school climate and culture, as out of school behavioral consequences leave students who need the most support out of school, disconnected from academic and emotional supports, and with gaps in their learning. Cheyenne High School was the pilot school for restorative practices in the Clark County School District. Cheyenne implemented restorative practices to address social and emotional barriers that that impede equal educational outcomes for all students. After four years of successful implementation, suspensions and expulsions decreased, relationships between teachers and students improved, and graduation rates soared. The presenters teach educators throughout Nevada how to implement restorative practices. This session will help participants implement restorative practices, improve school climate, and maintain continuous learning for all kids.
