Ending the school year well with restorative leadership. June 14/22

Listen now on I-Tunes Circle Forum 

he end of the school year is filled with the stresses of wrapping up the year and gearing up for September. Restorative leadership can address staff concerns like next year’s teaching assignment, room assignments and class lists. Stan shares an example where a conversation did not go so well. Join us this week as Shelley, Steve and Stan talk about building relationships by walking around.

Restorative practice suggestions:

  • Building positive supportive relationships with the adults in the school benefits students too.
  • Ask open-ended questions like “what’s happening for you?” In stressful times at school.
  • Make the check-ins short and simple.
  • Build relationships with staff and students during breaks by walking around and being present.
