Restorative Practices

As your child transitions into middle school years they will be hearing the term Restorative Practices. The function of Restorative Practices, or positive discipline, is restoring and building relationships when issues arise such as relationship problems, discipline issues or other situations where students need to address their own behaviors in cooperation with others. All Souderton Area School District secondary schools are using this positive discipline method. It focuses on the concept of using "social circles" to provide students with opportunities to share their feelings, ideas and experiences, while being held accountable for their choices.
