Partners in Education: Restorative Practices

GREEN BAY, Wis. - Washington Middle School counselor Katy Liddicoat, believes in restorative practices, and hopes to share it with other Green Bay schools.

"Statements about how you're feeling of something you're seeing, or something more formalized, like a classroom circle where everybody is sharing how they repeat the question that was asked," said Liddicoat.

School district officials said it's been important and effective for students. 

"I would like to see restorative circles at every school and for students to have the opportunity to share information, in the circle, be heard, with a voice and just build that positive environment in classrooms."

This has impacted kids in a very positive way.

The Shopko Foundation offered a check, for the students and school district, to continue these practices that are impacting students positively, according to counselors, and staff.

Kids, like Jaxston Tidwell, said they're building trust and gaining confidence.
