KCPS is a district where dignity is valued and upheld in all spaces
The KCPS Restorative Justice Department is committed to building a dignified, safe, and supportive community through culture-building activities and student accountability. Restorative Justice will be widely recognized in KCPS as an effective, evidence-based alternative to retributive policies and punitive school discipline, capable of reducing violence and fostering school safety. When embraced more broadly, restorative justice and restorative practices will build empathy, restore dignity, enable healing, and strengthen communities as we strive toward a just society in which all lives have equal value.
