The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of restorative practices on student behavior. The measurement tool was behavior passes from the 2016-2017 school year compared to 2017-2018 school year where restorative practices were implemented school-wide. This study used a quasi-experimental design to determine the effects of restorative practices on student behavior. The researcher analyzed the data using a t test for paired subjects. According to the results of the study, the number of passes given and in-school interventions was lower in 2017-2018 than in 2016-2017, but the differences were not statistically significant. Therefore, this study shows that the implementation of restorative practices can positively impact students’ behavior in the classroom. Research in this area should continue as there is very little information available regarding the effects of restorative practices on student behavior.
