Restorative Practices

  • Estes Park Schools is a restorative practice district that aims to build and foster strong and meaningful student and staff relationships.  The students, teachers, administrators, parents and community members connected to a school can work in a restorative way by getting to know each other, actively listening to and respecting each other, and by creating a foundation of trust, empathy, and safety in the school environment.  Because of restorative practices, students engage in their own balance of a safe learning environment through positive interpersonal relationship skills in their day to day interactions.
