Restorative Practices

Our vision for BVSD is to ensure all students, teachers, and staff -- regardless of gender, race, class, ability, or any other identities -- feel connected, safe, seen, heard, and valued within their school community. Restorative practices support this vision.

In 2020, Boulder Valley School District passed Resolution 20-33 to address equitable discipline and approaches to student conduct. More specifically, schools are expected to use best practices as well as culturally responsive practices in order to address inequities in discipline policies. Schools are expected to incorporate a wide range of strategies to support positive student behavior, reduce misbehavior, and maintain a safe learning environment, including the use of conflict resolution and restorative practices.
