At Impact Prep we use Restorative Practice as the foundation for everything we do. Restorative Practice means that we try to repair the harm we create, and we try to heal and teach instead of punish. For example, our Community Repair uses alternative consequences instead of suspensions, so that students learn from their mistakes and help make our community stronger. Our school values are based in Restorative Practice, are posted in every classroom and celebrated every day: Respect, Interconnectedness, Empowerment, and Accountability. We use these values to build a community where everyone can grow and thrive.
How we do it?
At Impact, Accountability means taking responsibility for your actions, which affect everyone including yourself. Taking responsibility means understanding the ripple effects of your action and reparing the harm
