Restorative Practice We are WITH you!

​The staff and students at Rosedale are expected to engage in restorative practices.  Restorative practice is a strategy that seeks to bring empathy and a sense of community responsibility to our school. At Rosedale, we actively practice in relationship building between students and peers, and students and adults. When conflict occurs we work repair relationships that have been damaged or affected. This process involves a protocol of questions or conferences.  When a student is involved in conflict he/she can expect to respond to these questions in a conference:

  1. What happened?

  2. What were you thinking at the time?

  3. What have you thought about since the incident?

  4. Whom do you think has been affected by your actions? In what way?

  5. What do you think you need to do to make things right?

When a student in the affected by the wrongdoing of others he or she will be asked:

  1. What did you think when you realized what had happened?

  2. What affect has this incident had on you and others?

  3. What has been the hardest thing for you?

  4. What do you think need to happen to make things right? 

Certain misbehaviors will still require consequences as outlined by the Baltimore County Behavior handbook. All students will participate in restorative conferences before consequences are assigned.

With this process of community responsibility and empathy, students will find ways to develop communication and social-emotional skills. These skills will benefit them throughout adolescents and into adulthood.
