Community Conferencing, a model of restorative justice, is used to divert cases from court involvement. Community Conferencing is a facilitated dialogue that allows schools, government agencies, faith communities, organizations, neighborhoods, and families to respond to conflict in constructive ways. Community Conferencing provides all people who are involved in and affected by a conflict or incident of harm to work together towards healing in a brave and structured space to resolve the matter safely and effectively. Schools are encouraged to refer students to Community Conferencing for conflicts and incidents that could result in offense charges being filed against youth. Community Conferencing is listed as a level 2 and level 4 intervention on the PGCPS Code of Student Conduct Level of Responses and Interventions chart. Participation is voluntary, confidential, and can be terminated at any time.
