Members of the pilot RPIA Cohort stepped up as RPIA coaches and began creating RPIA cohorts with more teachers in their schools. Our students reached groundbreaking levels of leadership and academic achievement in our classrooms, and this inspired our teachers to keep growing. Nearly 90% of our RPIA teachers were staying in the classroom year after year, citing RPIA as a key reason why they continued when so many of their colleagues left the classroom. When our work was recognized by the International Institute of Restorative Practices as an innovative and impactful way to integrate the philosophy of Restorative Practices in urban schools, we realized we were officially on to something!
