School-Based Training, Technical Assistance & Circle Support

CCEJ offers a variety of in-depth, experiential Restorative Justice trainings for community members, legal & law enforcement professionals, school staff and youth. We are proud to say we have trained hundreds of thousands of people across Los Angeles County & Southern California.

After training, we also work with schools in long term partnerships to plan implementation, strategies, coach teachers and administrators, co-facilitate circles, offer supplemental professional development and support Restorative school policy development.

We have extensive experience with a variety of contexts and demographics, including middle and high schools, public and charter settings, and alternative and credit recovery/continuation schools. We are particularly committed to working with sites where there are high concentrations of young people who are currently and historically targeted by school pushout, including LGBTQ+ students, students of color, students with disabilities and students who are eligible for free or reduced-priced lunches.

For more information on these offerings, please contact Belia Mayeno Saavedra, Director of Restorative Justice in Schools at bsaavedra@cacej.org.

Why Restorative Justice in Schools?

Restorative Justice is a key intervention in punitive systems which harm our communities and have not been proven to increase school safety or improve educational outcomes. 

  • Students who are suspended are 3 times more likely to drop out of school, and more likely to be incarcerated.
  • Schools enforce overly punitive discipline polices against students of color and special needs students more than others.
  • Students with disabilities are 2 times more likely to be suspended than non-disabled students.
  • Black students are 3.5 times more likely to be suspended than white students, Latinx students are twice as likely to be suspended than white students.
  • Foster youth are three times as likely as their peers to be suspended or expelled.
  • Restorative Practices work to prevent future harm. In our partner schools, we have seen significant decreases in fighting, bullying and willful defiance after RJ implementation, as well as decreases in suspensions and expulsions.
