Working Together:

A Guide to Positive Problem Solving for Schools, Families, and Communities

The purpose of this guide is to give everyone—parents, educators, and community members alike—the information to take part in the co-operative, creative problemsolving process of informal dispute resolution. It is intended to serve as a resource support to local school and school division dispute resolution policies and practices. Many schools and school divisions have dispute resolution policies in place, and for them it will serve as supplemental material.
