Phoenix Union Hosts RJ Summit

Representatives from Balsz District and Griffith school attend the first Restorative Justice Summit hosted by Phoenix Union Highschool District to learn about restorative justice efforts taking place within Phoenix Union district schools including Cesar Chavez and Camelback highschools. Keynote Cami Anderson of the Discipline Revolution Project spoke about the importance of creating a culture of equity and how restorative justice is an important tool in creating a culture of compassion and care not only for students but for teachers as well. 

Griffith is excited to learn that partnering highschools are beginning to shift away from punitive discipline practices creating continuity for students benefitting from restorative justice practices in elementary school.
