Ashe County Schools (ACS), in collaboration with RTI International, proposes a Restorative Justice in Ashe County Schools (RJACS) project in response to the 2022 BJA STOP School Violence Program grant solicitation. We will work with district and school staff, professional organizations, and school resource officers to develop and pilot restorative justice practices in Ashe County Schools. Implementing evidence-based restorative practices will improve school climate, reduce disciplinary infractions, and increase school safety.
