Brent Rourke is an assistant principal at Boulder High School in Colorado. This article consists of an interview with him not long after Boulder High initiated its restorative justice program. During the several months of the beginning phase, the program was employed to hold six community group conferences for offenses such as theft, harassment, fighting, and vandalism. Through the interview, Rourke discusses the goals of their restorative processes, the decision when to use conferencing in particular situations, student response to the processes, and the unique aspects of restorative justice in a school setting.
