RESTORE is a voluntary program that, upon successful completion, serves as an alternative to the expulsion process. RESTORE offers full-day academic and social / emotional programming within a restorative framework. The program includes opportunities for credit attainment and work experience for high school students.
All students will engage in social / emotional instruction and restorative practices to address the underlying issues that contribute to their behavior. Students have an opportunity to address the behavior that resulted in the recommendation for expulsion, repair harm caused by said behavior and receive support for social / emotional skill development all while continuing academic learning and credit attainment.
Moreover, RESTORE is designed to assist our students’ in developing a greater attachment to their school community and to engage in behavior that prepares them to become college, career, and community-ready.
Participation in this program is offered for certain behaviors as an alternative to going through the expulsion process. Students attending RESTORE are not expelled, and if they successfully complete their time at Restore they will have their expulsion recommendation dismissed completely.
