The purpose of this project was to examine the juvenile justice system in the state of Colorado and to explore the application of restorative justice in the educational system. Durango High School (DHS) was the primary focus of our studies, which we explored with the following research questions: Question 1: What is Durango High School‟s current student conduct system and how
does it function?; Question 2: Is this conduct system effective? Question 3: Is there a need for restorative practices in it?; Question 4: How does Durango High School compare to the Colorado school averages in terms of dropout rates, graduation rates, and disciplinary actions? (excerpt)
