South Side Elementary School
712 South Pine Street, Champaign
The Champaign-Urbana Area Project and the South Side PTA will be hosting our second Community Conversations event, focused this month on Restorative Justice in Schools. Parents, teachers, administrators, youth advocates, and community members will have the opportunity to learn about the benefits of restorative practices in schools and to participate in small-group discussions on how these practices might enhance our local schools.
Come learn about how restorative justice can create safe school climates, improve learning, decrease bullying, reduce suspension and expulsion rates, and much more! Share your thoughts and concerns with fellow community members so we can work together to improve our community.
This discussion will be led by Sara Balgoyen, parent of a South Side student and advocate of restorative justice through both CUAP and the Illinois Balanced and Restorative Justice Project.
Refreshments will be served and free babysitting will be provided.
