Restorative Justice

Restorative Justice is a mindset and philosophy toward school climate and relationship building. Important components are:

  • Proactively and intentionally developing relationships and building community.
  • Restoring, repairing, or healing the school community when harm has occurred.

The focus is on education, learning from mistakes, identifying and working on the root of the behavior, making deep-level change, repairing relationships, and restoring students and staff to the environment.

Our Westover ES Restorative Justice coaches are:

Ms. Carol Cave, counselor
Ms. Ayanna Heard, teacher
