Restraint and Seclusion Policy Change Approved

By | 2012-12-20T11:42:59+00:00 December 20th, 2012|Blog, Child Welfare & Safety, Education|

Child advocates, students, and parents across the state received good news this week when the Administrative Regulation Review Subcommittee approved the Kentucky Department of Education’s new restraint and seclusion policy proposal. As we recently discussed, restraints and seclusion can have terrible consequences for Kentucky children. The policy change will enhance  school safety for both students and staff by limiting the use of restraint and seclusion, educating teachers on how to safely conduct restraints when absolutely necessary, and educating teachers on more effective ways to improve student behavior. These regulations will in no way hinder school administrators’ abilities to react to behavioral crises and to take firm and immediate and forceful action.

As WFPL reported this week – the policy will now head to the  education committee for final approval.
