Restorative Practices

Reclaiming and Restoring Humanity:  Restorative Practices Summer Institute



Led by St. Paul Public School Restorative Practice leaders and community partners, this 3 day learning experience will engage your mind, body and heart in exploring pathways to understanding your personal and professional implementation of restorative practices. Social emotional learning, arts integration, racial equity, and mindfulness – all through the lens of circle processes and practices — will guide your learning and facilitation of restorative processes. Morning sessions will deepen your understanding of how restorative practices marries to your individual and school culture; afternoon sessions will support your planning and practice of circle processes anchored in community reflection.

August 16-18, 2017 from 8:30 – 3:30 each day — at the Education Minnesota Building.

At SPFT, our members want schools where all kids can shine, and where parents and teachers—the two groups of people who know our students best—have the opportunity for creating such a community within their school. We know that students can thrive when all who care about them come together to unlock the potential we know that each of our students have.

Unfortunately, in Saint Paul, we do not have a history of doing that.
