Help us make an impact!
CALEB's Education Task Force has been working to expand restorative practice implementation throughout schools in Chattanooga. To continue the expansion of restorative practices in Hamilton County schools, our mission now is to raise $3,000 by August 12, 2022. Through reaching our fundraising goal, we will be considered for up to $41,000 in grant monies that will be used to support two elementary schools in implementing restorative practices to disrupt the school-to-prison pipeline and address the disparities in exclusionary discipline practices (expulsions, suspensions, etc.) that disproportionately impact low-income and minority communities.
We know restorative practices positively impact students and schools - a 2021-2022 school year pilot program at Orchard Knob Elementary School led to suspensions dropping over 60% when compared to data from the last non-COVID school year (2019-2020).
By donating just $5 or more to the link below, you help us move forward towards our goals of equality, inclusion, and success for all children in Hamilton County schools.
