Description of the Toolkit

The Growing Fairness Toolkit is over 250 (and growing!) pages of original reflections, protocols, lesson plans, and so much more, written by teachers and students in schools across the city that are working to create restorative and inclusive school communities. The Toolkit is a resource created alongside the Growing Fairness documentary and workshops. Organized by school, it includes relevant information for readers to best understand the climate in which the tools were developed. Check it out here!

A note about how the toolkit works:

Each pdf file, or packet, is organized by school and has been authored by educators (and students!) who have been growing restorative justice practices in that school. For the most part, each file includes a reflection of how their efforts succeeded and what challenges they met; actual protocols, lesson plans, or other tools that were developed; and a snapshot of the school (its Title I status, its size, its philosophy, etc.)

Each packet is categorized by the following tags described below:

  • advisory - includes a reflection and/or lesson plan for advisory or homeroom setting
  • evaluation - includes materials used to evaluate the progress of restorative justice rollout in a school
  • fairness committee - includes a protocol or training exercise for a fairness committee [PDF here]
  • group assist - includes protocols for this particular kind of supportive circle for students (or staff) who may be struggling with a certain kind of behavior
  • mediation - includes protocols or training exercise for implementing mediation
  • peer mediation - includes protocol or training exercise for implementing peer mediation
  • professional development - includes agendas or materials used in having discussions with staff about restorative justice
  • student leadership - includes reflection about, or tools for building student leadership into restorative culture
  • Tier 1 circle - includes a protocol or training exercise for a Tier I or community building restorative circle
  • Tier II & III Circle - includes exercises or resources on restorative discipline circles, response to harm, or re-entry for a student who has been suspended or incarcerated
