RESTORATIVE ACTION PLANS

A Problem-Solving Approach*

School Restorative Practices Coordinator

Individual

Restorative action plans (RAPs) are used to identify, address, and evaluate the steps necessary to repair harm to victims, reintegrate removed offenders, and strengthen relationships in the community. This 2 hour training is designed for all staff involved in the student discipline process. Restorative action plans take a problem-solving approach to discipline, replacing punitive measures with emotional learning opportunities.

Restorative Action Plans (RAP©) incorporate the following three elements:

 

Step 1: Restoration

Encourages offenders to repair the harm they have caused to a victim and the community. Restorative Action Plans seek to repair the harm – the damage, or to “fix it” as much as possible by addressing the needs and priorities of the victims and affected community members. For a RAP to be effective, these actions must consider the victim and community’s needs.

Step 2: Reintegration

They are developing the necessary healing steps to reconnect offenders to their victims and community. Restorative Action Plans help reconnect and re-engage removed offenders whose behavior has damaged or impaired relationships. The objective of the RAP is to move incrementally towards healing actions.

Step 3: Relationships

Restorative Action Plans are steps to strengthen connections to the offender and individuals that will provide support for them. The RAP can help strengthen offender relationships with the community and possibly reduce the likelihood of repeated offenses.

Restorative Action Plans:

▪ Should be acceptable to the victim(s) and community members
▪ Need to take the needs and feelings of the victim(s) into consideration
▪ Need to be actionable by the offender
▪ Need to minimize or prevent future offenses

RAP’s should also:
o Connect the offender to supportive people and strategies
o Address the underlying causes of the problematic behaviors

 

Transparency

The transition from punitive measures to Restorative Action Plans can be challenging for staff and students. Educators and administrators who are not involved in the RAP planning process may feel that behavior problems are going unaddressed. RAP© stakeholders can ease any tensions by being transparent about how and why RAPs are being implemented and ensuring that any agreements are upheld. Stakeholders should also establish a safe system for delivering RAP© information to other educators.

Objective Tools for both workshops:

  • Knowledge in the RAP preparation
  • Strategies to build strong, knowledgeable, empathic caring relationships with w/students
  • Tools to establish systematic referral protocols when conflicts arise
  • A standardized list of alternative disciplinary consequences based on RP principles to address unwanted behaviors

TARGET AUDIENCE
