Restorative PBIS

Shorten the Line at the Principal's Door

while Transforming  your School Culture

with PBIS & Restorative Practices

This online course is the only step-by-step approach that will seamlessly integrate PBIS & Restorative Practices to help you cut down on problem behavior, boost your school climate, and increase the well-being of both teachers and students. In the course you will create a school environment that's not just safe and positive, but truly restorative. Your students and staff will thrive, feeling secure, acknowledged, and cherished while your parent community will feel proud and lucky that their children get to attend your school!

Restorative PBIS
Before I tell you all about this program, let's talk about
who this is really for...

You're in the right place!

Restorative PBIS School Leadership Academy will give you the tools, knowlege, confidence and support to shortening the line at the principal's door while transforming your school culture, increasing teacher fulfillment and  satisfaction.

And I’ll prove it! (Keep scrolling!)

Restorative PBIS School Leadership Academy is for school leaders like you. You believe that schools should be safe, positive places but you are tired of out of control behavior, frustrated teachers, and angry parents and you are ready to build a school culture that allows you to impact your students lives in a positive way, make teachers feel heard and supported, and parents feel proud that their child attends your school!

Whether you’re…

A school site administrator who is run ragged by reactive, inconsistent approaches to student misbehavior, and despite your best efforts, your teachers are feeling “unsupported” because you are not being punitive enough, and your parent community is demanding more. You realize the need for proactive strategies and consistent systems because you're committed to forging a positive school culture for all, promoting equity and kindness, empowering both students and teachers to chart a clear path forward together.

A school district administrator who is disheartened by punitive disciplinary systems that push kids out of school rather than fostering repair and relationship-building. You've seen success with PBIS or Restorative Practices and, with a heart for children and families, you're set to scale these practices across multiple schools, positively impacting even more students and nurturing inclusive, supportive environments.

An aspiring school leader who wants to lead a school in an inspiring and transformational way, but up to this point, you haven’t found a leader you really want to emulate. You were able to create a positive supportive and inclusive classroom where students felt valued and respected, and you believe you can make that happen schoolwide.: Create an empathetic, nurturing environment where both students and educators flourish.

By the end of the Restorative PBIS School Leadership Academy you will have...


Dramatically reduced problem behavior

Many schools experience up to a 40% reduction in problem behavior within the first month of implementing my Restorative PBIS framework.


Gained Parent Buy-In

No more angry parents in your office complaining about their child's teacher or other students. Instead they will feel their child is listened to and treated fairly - that they are safe and cared for in your school.


Improved School Climate

Schools that implement my Restorative PBIS framework consistently earn the highest school climate scores in their region (and yours will too!)


Turned your attention back to instructional leadership

Now that behavior isn't a 24/7 emergency taking up ALL of your time., imagine where you could lead your school...


Improved teacher & staff well-being

Teachers will no longer go home each night frustrated by student behavior but instead will be able to enjoy their students and improve their instructional practices.


The school every teacher wants to teach at and every parent wants their child to attend!

Funny Coincidence? Schools implementing my Restorative PBIS framework rarely have openings - and often a list of staff wanting to transfer in!

"What we learned from Laura, “If you don't have a community, then there's nothing to restore.”

“We had a long history of  high staff turnover due to student behavior.  But because of our work with Laura implementing Restorative Practices, last year I retained 95% of my staff, which had NEVER happened. I have no openings going into next year. I didn't even have to interview because I had teachers requesting to transfer in!”

“Laura’s online courses are meaningful and powerful and will help you guide your school in one year a hundred steps up the ladder that it would've taken a lot longer to do. It's worth every penny - to get time with Laura is a gift!”


Janet Handley

Assistant Superintendant

Since working with Laura, we have reduced 67% suspensions overall in our district, and in one particular elementary school alone, saw a 55% reduction in just one year and our School Climate increased 10% overall.

“I realized that the same teachers who were asking for harsher punishments were the same ones who would go sit out in the cold and watch their student’s football game on a Friday night. Now I can honestly say we are a restorative school and we have a common language. What we learned from Laura, and is now our school phrase, “If you don't have a community, then there's nothing to restore.”

  • Do you accept Purchase Orders?
    Yes, there are 2 options to register. One of the options is to upload a district P.O. Make sure you upload the P.O. before the due date. You can upload your P.O. here.
  • What is the length of the course?
    The course runs for 8 weeks but you can go at your own pace. Changing your school culture takes time! So don't worry, you'll have access to the course for as long as we offer the course. This means you'll also have access to updated content.
  • What happens if I get behind on the course?
    No worries, you can go through this course at your own pace. We understand that changing your school culture takes time, so we are committed to you! You'll have access to the course for as long as we offer the course. And you don't need to worry if you miss any of the live sessions. All live sessions will be recorded and posted.
  • What is the cost of the course?
    The course will be $1497 and will include lifetime access to video modules, implementation materials and protocols, Live Q & A sessions, and your Accountability Pod of like-minded school leaders working toward the same goal of creating a more positive, restorative school.
  • I am fairly new to Restorative Practices & PBIS? Will this be too advanced for me?
    Absolutely not! This course will delve into the fundamental aspects of both Restorative Practices and PBIS. If you're just starting and need to establish a solid groundwork for these programs, I suggest taking your time to fully implement them before progressing too quickly. Here is the upside for you: What's exciting is that the initial year of PBIS implementation often yields significant results – I've witnessed schools reduce problem behavior by 60% within the first month alone! While the subsequent work may not reflect as prominently on a graph, it significantly contributes to deep and meaningful improvements in student and teacher wellbeing.
  • We've been doing PBIS for a long time, will this course be too basic for us?
    Not at all! While this course briefly covers the fundamental aspects of PBIS (in only one module) its main focus is on incorporating a "Restorative Twist" into your existing PBIS systems. For instance, imagine taking the process of establishing schoolwide expectations – if previously done with a small group, why not involve both your staff and students in a circle to collaborate and gather feedback together? Given your solid foundation in PBIS, you'll swiftly progress to integrating key elements of Restorative Practices into your school framework. Your advantage lies in your understanding of creating and utilizing schoolwide systems to yield significant results. You'll leverage these same systems to make headway in implementing Restorative Practices!
  • When will we be meeting LIVE?
    In our weekly LIVE Q&A sessions you can connect with other school leaders and ask Laura your toughest questions. These sessions will rotate days and times to ensure the most people can attend at least some of them. Stay tuned for specific dates and times!
  • What is the weekly time commitment for the course?
    The total time commitment is about 3 hours per week, including watching the weekly videos, attending LIVE Q&A sessions, and meeting with your accountability pod.
  • Is the class conducted live or through pre-recorded videos? How is the information delivered
    Both! Pre-recorded videos: The course has 8 modules which are released each week (you can find out more about the content of each module here). Each module has 4-8 videos of 4-12 minutes in length. There is also a wealth of PDF files with implementation activities, worksheets, and reference guides. Live: In our weekly LIVE Q&A sessions you can connect with other school leaders and ask Laura your toughest questions. These sessions will rotate days and times to ensure the most people can attend at least some of them. Stay tuned for specific dates and times! Live: You'll also be part of an accountability pod which consists of 4 or 5 other educational leaders. Each accountability pod decides when they meet. Also, join our private Facebook group, where you'll connect with current enrollees and alumni. It's the perfect place to ask questions, share experiences, and support fellow school leaders.

You should give Restorative PBIS School Leadership Academy a 14-day risk free try if you are motivated by any of the following


You want to shorten the line at your door so you can focus on being an Instructional Leader

Whether it is classroom misbehavior, defiance and disrepect, or student conflict and bullying, you're fully aware that you don't have the time, or systems that you TRULY need to make the impact in student lives that you want. More importantly, you'd prefer not to spend the rest of your career punishing kids while having teachers and parents angry that you are not doing "enough."


You're not afraid to lead staff and students to transform your school

By now, you fully understand that if you don't intentionally shape the school culture, it'll shape itself. But that doesn't scare you—it actually energizes you! You see the challenges ahead as an opportunity to create a school environment that's not just safe and positive but truly restorative. And that could be your greatest career achievement.


You recognize that there is no "perfect time," and waiting is not the answer

That doesn't mean you don't break a sweat when you think about pressing the buy button below and investing time and money into your school. But it does mean that you're fully aware that it's "Year 0" of an intentional transformation into becoming a Restorative School, and only YOU can decide. For what it's worth, if you don't decide to change your school culture, no one else will either.


Still on the fence?

Give us a call!

Whenever I'm about to make a big decision the most comforting thing is to speak to someone about it.

We would love to set up a call with you so we can see if Restorative PBIS School Leadership Academy is a good fit, answer any questions about the course, and see whether this opportunity is right for you.

Restorative PBIS isn't Magic...

But it IS a powerful, reliable, and evidence-based way to decrease problem behavior and increase school climate without falling into the all-too-common school administrator trap of relying on 'consequences' and 'punishment' to change student behavior.

Whether you dream of a school filled with happy kids and teachers, or aim to ensure your staff feels valued and heard...

Or whether you feel like you are stuck in your office dealing with misbehavior and want to get back into classrooms,  or you hope to learn swift and effective ways to address behavior - 

Restorative PBIS holds the key.


It can unlock levels of staff and student well-being that seemed unreachable and completely revolutionize your school. It will teach you simple strategies and streamlined framework to get your time back, lead your school with the focus and clarity you need and rekindle your passion for why you started in the first place, 

Because here is the truth.

It's not the most highly educated, well-connected, or the most charming school administrator that creates the schools everyone wants to be part of. 

It's the ones who are open to trying, humbly inviting others to join, and committing to working together to create a  happier, fairer and more inclusive school environment, not just for children but for the adults too.
