The workshop will be followed by a short KHS PA meeting from 7:30 pm – 8:00 pm.

If your student has ever done something wrong and been excessively punished or just been in the ‘wrong place at the wrong time’, this workshop is for you. If you are concerned about an excessively punitive culture and would like to see more restorative justice, this workshop is for you. If you are concerned that your student might make a bad choice in the future and be faced with some scary consequences, this workshop is for you. If you care about the kids here in Kingston, this workshop is for you.

  1. Hey Jolyn,

    This workshop looks like a great event! I will definitely be reaching out to education committee folks to ask them to be there.

    We are meeting next Tuesday the 2nd to formalize our outreach plan and goals for collecting suspension/disciplinary code stories and to practice our rap for talking to parents about this issue. Would it be possible for us to table at the event with information about our campaign / make an announcement at the beginning or end of the workshop to let folks know what we’re up to?

    Let me know what you think! Definitely don’t want to disrupt the event if it would be distracting but it seems like a great opportunity to make the connection.

    In solidarity,
    Alex
