      • Step 2: Seek a path forward that is informed by restorative practices 
  • Board discussions should include all voices equally. 
    • Share your perspective on an issue when appropriate. Be mindful of leaving space for other voices. Do not dominate the discussion. Do not talk over or interrupt other speakers. Avoid cross-talk; wait to be recognized by the chair before speaking.
  • Be mindful of each other’s time. 
    • Start meetings on time. Keep comments on the topic and avoid lengthy monologues. Recognize the goal of ending meetings by 9:00.
