Ms. Eblen from Kansas City MO is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hacking School Discipline: Building Restorative Justice Spaces

Help me give my students a second conference and mediation space in the school. Currently, an average of 21 students a day visit the Restorative Justice office. With a second space, the RJ team can double those numbers.

My Students

Restorative Justice in education settings teaches students about empathy, dignity, and conflict resolution skills.

Our staff in Kansas City, MO greet 600 students, 14-18, each morning.

These students are changing the stereotype of what people think it means to be a Knight by building a safer and kinder school through Restorative practices.

A 10th grader describes her school like this, “People think our school is a fighting school, but we are the students working to make our school and our entire community less violent. We’re not just the future leaders; we’re the current leaders of our community.”

My Project

Currently, our school has the only in-house Restorative Justice in-house Department in the city. The Department serves an average of 21 students a day, with conferencing, mediation, family meetings, and de-escalation services. This extra space will allow the department to serve more students during the school day. These spaces teach students to identify their needs, resolve conflicts without violence, and practice coping strategies. Currently, the students asking for services is higher than what one space can serve (for privacy reasons). The more options/spaces students have for a positive outlet, the less they use negative outlets such as self-harm and fighting.
