Restraint, Isolation and Other Uses of Reasonable Force
Use of Restraint or Isolation
Restraint or isolation is only permitted in accordance with state law when reasonably necessary to control spontaneous behavior that poses an imminent likelihood of serious harm.
Staff will closely monitor such actions to prevent harm to the student and will use the minimum amount of restraint and isolation appropriate to protect the safety of students and staff. Restraint or isolation will be discontinued when the likelihood of serious harm has dissipated.
The superintendent or a designee will develop procedures to implement this policy, including review, reporting and parent/guardian notification of incidents involving restraint or isolation as required by law.
