Free Webinars on Life After High School and Restorative Justice
Based on your interest in past Region IX Equity Assistance Center at WestEd webinars, we would like to invite you to two upcoming webinars addressing student access to and engagement with curriculum. A hallmark of our interactive webinars, in the words of a past webinar participant, is “being in contact with such diverse, strong, committed people.” The chat area provides you the opportunity to connect with other participants on these topics to share questions. (For those of you who cannot make these times, the webinar will be archived.) Please see more information below:

WestEd’s Anthony Petrosino and Sarah Guckenburg will describe their research on how restorative justice is being used in U.S. schools. They will be joined by Sam Garrison from Camden Street Dream Academy in Newark, New Jersey. He will describe the work of administrators and teachers in using restorative justice at their elementary school site, and the impact on student outcomes. This webinar is sponsored by the Region IX Equity Assistance Center at WestEd and the Equity Assistance Center Region II.
Both webinars are ideal for education administrators, principals, teachers, after school staff, counselors, parents, and leaders in community based organizations and government agencies. Please feel free to forward this webinar announcement to your networks.
