Habits of Mind

IMG 0718.JPG

The Habits of Mind are an identified set of 16 problem solving, life related skills, necessary to effectively operate in society and promote strategic reasoning, insightfulness, perseverance, creativity and craftsmanship. The understanding and application of these 16 Habits of Mind serve to provide the individual with skills to work through real life situations that equip that person to respond using awareness (cues), thought, and intentional strategy in order to gain a positive outcome.

Restorative Justice Corner

What is Restorative Justice in Schools?

Restorative Justice is a “philosophy and approach to discipline that moves away from punishment...to ensure accountability and break the cycle of retribution and violence” ( Alfed, 2010).

The following Principles of Restorative Justice provide the foundation of what we are implementing here at Jefferson High School:

1. Acknowledge that relationships are essential to building a successful school community.

2. Build systems that address student misconduct and harm in a a way that strengthens relationships and focus on the harm done rather than focusing on the rule broken.

3. Utilize Restorative Practices School-wide to manage behavior such as Community Building Circles, Restorative Conferences, Restorative Language

a. Example of Affective “ I” statements- “ John, I feel concerned when I see you walking the halls.”
