Seclusion and Restraint Bill Passes House Committee

A proposed policy on the use of seclusion and restraint in schools passed the House Education Committee this week. 
 
The package of bills (HB 5409-5418) would eliminate the use of seclusion and restraint in the classroom except for last-resort emergency situations. Districts would be required to notify parents and document to the state every time seclusion or restraint is used.
