Ward 3 School Commissioner Liz Curry is joined by Rachel Jolly, the Director of the Burlington Community Justice Center, to discuss the restorative practices currently being implemented in Burlington schools.

The Burlington School District's four-year Strategic Plan includes a focus on Climate and Culture. To support this goal, Superintendent Obeng and his staff invited Community Justice Center partners from Burlington and South Burlington to collaborate on a restorative practices initiative.

"Restorative justice is an effective alternative to punitive responses to wrongdoing. Inspired by indigenous traditions, it brings together persons harmed with persons responsible for harm in a safe and respectful space, promoting dialogue, accountability, and a stronger sense of community."
