Deans' Office

Deans' Office Philosophy: We believe in and utilize Restorative Practices. Research suggests Restorative Practices foster healthy relationships and promote positive discipline in schools. The fundamental hypothesis of Restorative Practices is that human beings are happier, more cooperative and productive, and more likely to make positive changes in their behavior when those in positions of authority do things with them rather than to them or for them. Restorative Practices are used to improve relationships between students, between students and educators, and even between educators whose behavior often serves as a role model for students. The aim of Restorative Practices is to develop community and manage relational conflict by repairing harm and restoring the relationship between the victim(s) and the person(s) creating the harm.

“Parent involvement in education is crucial. No matter their income or background, students with involved parents are more likely to have higher grades and test scores, attend school regularly, have better social skills, show improved behavior, and adapt well to school.” - National Coalition for Parent Involvement in education
