With restorative discipline, schools move beyond punitive approaches to shared expectations for learning and behaviour. Used together with The School Leader's Guide to Restorative Discipline, this teacher's guide shows how to create a welcoming and responsible community within your classroom, contributing to a consistent school-wide approach to discipline.
