School Justice Partnerships

School Justice Partnerships (SJPs) are made up of community stakeholders--including school districts, juvenile courts, healthcare providers, and law enforcement--that collaborate to keep kids in schools and out of the criminal justice system.

A primary goal of SJPs is to lower the number of children experiencing exclusionary discipline (suspensions and expulsions), arrests, and referrals to Juvenile Court.

SJPs also work to increase the use of restorative practices and alternatives to exclusionary discipline by school administrators and school law enforcement.
