What is restorative practices?
Restorative Practices are based on principles and processes that emphasize the importance of positive relationships as central to building community and restoring relationships when harm has occurred.
At Benjamin E. Mays, we have a space called the "Green Room" for our students and staff. We implement the Zones of Regulation to understand our feelings and emotions. When students are feeling disregulated, teachers are able to send students down to the "Green Room." It is a safe space where students and staff are able to release energy and/or calm down to rest themselves.

What is PBIS?
Implementation framework for maximizing the selection and use of evidence-based prevention and intervention practices along a multi-tiered continuum that supports the academic, social, emotional, and behavioral competence of all students.
PBIS implementation involves explicitly prompting, modeling, practicing, and encouraging positive expected social skills across settings and individuals. When students are taught to effectively use relevant expected social skills for themselves and with others, school climates are described as more positive, learning environments are designated as safer, and student-educator relationships are referred to as more trusting and respectful.
