Subcommittee Approves Restraint and Seclusion Policy Change

The Administrative Regulation Review Subcommitee approved the Kentucky Department of Education’s new restraint and seclusion policy proposal Monday. Kentucky is one of several states that don’t have a state law governing restraint and seclusion in schools so it's up to KDE to set that policy. The changes would increase training and parent communication and allow restraint and seclusion of misbehaving students in cases of imminent threats.
