Restorative Justice Practices
At Lee Lewis Campbell Elementary Media and Performing Arts Institute, we implement restorative justice practices. We train our Dragon Leaders and empower them to use their discretion in terms of what this might look like in their classrooms.
In this example, the focus is representation and its utmost importance among scholars of color to see leaders that look like them.
