AHA-B District Initiative

The AHA-B District initiative is led by a Steering Group made up of district leadership, campus administration, Restorative Practice Interventionists, and other highly interested campus staff and community members. Since inception, the AHA-B Steering Group and AHA-B Community Task Force have worked together to create a sustainable program that conducts annual surveys of students, parents, district staff, and community to continually improve our respectful learning community.
