Referrals at an all time high? Changing demographics? Experiencing high teacher turnover? Maybe even find yourself mid year without a principal? Trust me, we’ve been there. “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” We invite you to experience the Grisham Middle School spark so that you can light your school’s fire! We’ll share how we went, in one year, from 422 discipline referrals to 155, cut tardies in half and made coming to school fun. Creating the big spark requires intention, collaboration and ongoing reflection. The big spark lays the best foundation for full restorative practice implementation. We can’t wait to share with you and learn from you too!
