ISD 287 Restorative Practices

Intermediate School District 287 provides intensive educational supports to its students. ISD 287 staff use a variety of practices to manage the school atmosphere, foster social connection, manage interpersonal conflict, and maintain school safety. Restorative practices comprise some of the tools that ISD 287 students, teachers, and staff use to create a safe, nurturing, and productive school environment. Since the 2014–2015 school year, Wilder Research has been working with ISD 287 to evaluate restorative practices in the district.
