Restitution Focus: At Millstream, we will begin by focusing on one strategy/approach related to restitution. This focus will be discussed and worked on in all classrooms in order to help foster understanding, consistency and a common language to further support all of our students.
Current Focus: My Job/Your Job
for this activity students work with their teachers/support staff to develop a list of "responsibilities" for each individual. These lists are co-developed and serve as a guide for what each individual needs to do to be socially and academically successful and support others to do the same. If we are all doing our job, we will be increasing the likelihood of success for ourselves and those around us. This list is a reference point throughout the year and serves a living document to be revisited and revised. Try this at home to further clarify/identify various tasks and or the way people should be together. Please check back for some classroom examples.
Millstream Elementary School is a Restitution pilot school.
Restitution is an approach to discipline that aims to support students to fix their mistakes, learn from the experience and return to the community strengthened and confident.
An assumption when using this approach is that all behavior is purposeful and serves as a student’s best attempt to meet their need(s) in a given situation.
Using this approach we teach all of the students the 5 basic human needs and we support the students to find positive ways to meet their needs.
The 5 basic needs are: Power Belonging Freedom Fun Survival
