The work of Fresno Unified’s Restorative Practices Pilot began in early 2014 with professional learning for staff at six McLane Region schools, expanding to the remaining seven in the fall of 2014. The schools welcomed this as an exciting and innovative opportunity for them to enrich their school communities by focusing on positive relationships and a culture of high expectations, support and engagement.

​With strategic planning and evaluation, we believe that our 13 McLane Region schools will lead the way for our district’s successful implementation of Restorative Practices across all Fresno Unified sites. This Pilot is truly comprehensive—it involves proactive and responsive school-wide, classroom and individual level structures and practices to be established. As all schools have different needs and ​priorities based on their data and use of climate/culture and social/emotional components, Restorative Practices School Counselors have been assigned to support the learning and implementation efforts.
