Restorative Practices and Attendance

Restorative practices is a framework that can assist students and parents remain engaged in the educational process. The cultural shift of using restorative practices within attendance intervention practices fits perfectly with the intent of the School Attendance Review Team (SART) or Student Attendance Review Board (SARB) processes; identification of concerns; opening channels of communication; supporting families to address barriers to attendance and helping to link students and parents to resources that will lead to increased engagement. Although accountability is still part of the SART/SARB process, the approach is one of working "with" youth and families as opposed to doing things "to" them in order to incite change.
