What We Do

01

Training

We train you to identify violations of your child’s rights, replace counterproductive measures (such as suspension or expulsion) with Restorative Justice or Alternative Corrective Action, and pursue academic, social, or emotional assistance.

02

Empowerment

We empower you with a strategy to resolve violations and facilitate corrective measures, defensive action (such as filing civil complaints and pursuing legal action), and resources to help your child succeed in the K-12 public school system.
