Restorative justice emphasizes values of empathy, respect, honesty, acceptance, responsibility, and accountability. It provides ways to effectively address behavior and other complex school issues and offers a supportive environment that can improve learning, improve safety by preventing future harm,  and offers alternatives to suspension and expulsion.

The Alliance School staff would like to invite you to a restorative justice training and retreat at the Wilderness Resort and Waterpark in the Wisconsin Dells. This three day training will involve participants in the practice of peacemaking and conflict resolution circles through participation in authentic peace-building circles and mock restorative justice circles. Participants will leave the training with skills and resources to use in their own restorative justice practices back in the classroom or school community.
