About RocRestorative

    • The RocRestorative Team is made up of more than a dozen counselors, dedicated coaches, and community partners trained in restorative practice and ready to support our schools and serve all students in the Rochester City School District.

      Our Restorative Practices are built from the bottom up, by our school communities, through dialogue, assessing needs and resources through a strength-based lens, and applying these principles to each unique situation.  Our team, through ongoing coaching and support, partners with schools to recognize and enhance existing and additional resources, provide training, and design and evaluate professional learning opportunities.

      We envision schools where peace, equity, social justice, and academic excellence are achieved through a collaborative effort of all school-community members to engage in restorative practices to build relationships, respond to and repair harm and wrongdoing, as well as to learn from one another.
