Kansas Board of Ed Revises Restraint Rules

KSAL StaffAugust 12, 2015

The Kansas Board of Education has given initial approval to new rules on student restraint that establish procedures for parents who believe emergency safety interventions have been used improperly on their children.

The board gave initial approval Tuesday to the changes on seclusion and restraint on students in emergency situations.

The Wichita Eagle reports the regulations now go to the Attorney General’s Office and the Department of Administration.

The changes come after the Legislature passed a bill last session known as the “Freedom from Unsafe Restraint and Seclusion Act.”

The new regulations set up a procedure for parents to seek an investigation if they think emergency safety interventions have been improperly used. Parents can also request an administrative review to determine if a school district has violated a law.
