We offer training and consultation to St. Vrain Valley School District through a Justice Assistance Grant (JAG). School personnel from other districts are also welcome to our trainings and to contact us about other ways to collaborate.

RPS Pilot Program 

The Restorative Practices in Schools Pilot Program was a grant-funded program in partnership with SVVSD and the Longmont Police Department School Resource Officer Program that worked with students at Longmont High School and its feeder middle schools - Longs Peak and Westview Middle Schools. The RPS Pilot Program addressed the full spectrum of discipline issues in these schools. LCJP provided a staff person as the program manager, who partnered with the School Resource Officer and provided training and guidance to the Student Restorative Justice Team and to the school staff. The Student Restorative Justice Team was a very special group of students who joined based on their interest in Restorative Justice, and their relationship with the Program Manager and School Resource Officer. Those students trained as facilitators, restorative mediators, and community members for the circle and restorative mediation processes. They participated in each process, helping their peers surface and identify harms, resolve conflict, make things right after crime or conflict, and facilitating reintegration into the school community. Between August 2010 and May 2015, the pilot program's restorative processes diverted 190 court referrals and saved 375 days of suspension, a total increase of 2,600 hours of in-class learning time.
