The School Mediation Center (Boulder, Colorado) received funding from certain government agencies to develop restorative justice programs in Boulder and Broomfield, communities in Colorado. This led to a Restorative Justice in Schools Program conducted in the spring of 2002. In this document, Ierley and Ivker survey a study of that program. They present an overview of key statistics from the study, issues related to restorative justice in schools, a case study of restorative justice in a school setting, the structure of the program, a summary of all cases and agreements handled in the program, and information on participant responses and satisfaction.
