Board Equity Spotlight: Renfroe Middle School's Equity Professional Learning Opportunities

The Equity Team for Renfroe Middle School(RMS) shared with the Board their plan for professional learning(PL) and their experience with their first PL, which focused on Restorative Practices.


Restorative practices are processes that proactively build healthy relationships and a sense of community to prevent and address conflict and wrongdoing. Restorative practices are increasingly being applied in individual schools and school districts to address youth behavior and to improve school climate and culture. Restorative practices can improve relationships between students as well as between educators, whose behavior often serves as a role model for students. 

Principal Greg Wiseman shared that this was the first of eight Equity PL opportunities for the RMS staff scheduled throughout the year.
