This publication is one in a series of guides developed to assist in the statewide implementation of
restorative justice. Restorative justice can guide the work of individuals who deal with young
offenders, their victims, and the communities in which they live.
Implementing restorative justice: A guide for schools is specifically designed to provide Illinois
school personnel with practical strategies to apply restorative justice. A variety of juvenile justice
practitioners and school personnel provided guidance during the development of this guide to make
it applicable for those working in elementary and secondary schools. Many school districts in Illinois
already incorporate the restorative justice philosophy in their discipline codes.(excerpt)
