Restorative Justice


Overview

Restorative Justice is a set of principles and practices that build community and involve processes that restore relationships when harm has occurred.

Washington was a pilot school for Restorative Justice (RJ) through SEEDS during the 2015-16 and 2016-17 school years. The administration found the program to be so successful in lowering the number of office visits and fostering communication between students, that they worked with the PTA to pay for a part-time RJ coordinator after the pilot ended. 

Washington’s current Restorative Justice coordinator is Jamal Williams. For more information about the program and how it helps Washington kids, please email him at jamalwilliams@berkeley.net.
