Zones of Regulation (What Zone are you in?)The Zones of Regulation is a curriculum geared toward helping students gain skills in consciously regulating their actions, which in turn leads to increased control and problem solving abilities.

Restorative Practices- This is an emerging social science that studies how to strengthen relationships between individuals, as well as, social connections within communities. At Lincoln we start our day with a circle and use this process as the main resource to resolve conflicts.
Trauma Informed Care-Becoming “trauma-informed” means recognizing that people often have many different types of trauma in their lives.

Understanding the impact of trauma is an important first step in becoming a compassionate and supportive community.
