Implementation Guide

The Denver School-Based Restorative Practices Partnership is a coalition that includes Advancement Project, Denver Classroom Teachers Association, Denver Public Schools, National Education Association, and Padres & Jóvenes Unidos.

The content of this guide was written in working groups comprised of representatives of the partner organizations, allies in the community, and the knowledgeable staff of North High School, Skinner Middle School, and Hallett Fundamental Academy in Denver, CO.

This implementation guide builds upon the first report issued by the Denver School-Based Restorative Practices Partnership, Taking Restorative Practices
School-Wide: Insights from three schools in Denver, written by Yolanda Anyon, MSW, Ph.D., of the University of Denver’s Graduate School of Social Work.

Our work has been made possible through the generous and continued support of Denver Public Schools, Colorado Education Association, and National Education Association’s Center for Great Public Schools and Office of Minority Community Organizing & Partnerships.

It is the passionate students, families, and educators working to end the school-to-prison pipeline that will bring this guide to life.
