Director of Student Services, Dr. Susan Craig, is the recipient of SEEDS Community Resolution Center’s 2013 Community Partner Award for her role in Berkeley Unified School District’s efforts to support positive school communities, prevent violence, and reduce exclusionary discipline practices in schools. Congratulations and thank you Dr. Craig!
BUSD partners with SEEDS to provide restorative justice support at Rosa Parks Elementary School, King Middle School, Longfellow Middle School, and Willard Middle School. Restorative justice support will soon be offered at Malcolm X Elementary School.
Restorative justice fosters an environment of care, encourages accountability and responsibility, and addresses misbehavior and harm in an inclusive manner that strengthens relationships.
