Today, the House Education and Labor Subcommittee held a hearing about the problematic use of seclusion and restraints in schools and the provisions of the Keeping All Students Safe Act (KASSA). KASSA proposes to:
Eliminate seclusion and the use of chemical and mechanical restraints
Strict regulations on the use of restraints
Requirements for training school staff on crisis interventions
Reporting and notification requirements
The Center urges the subcommittee to re-introduce and pass KASSA in order to make schools safe learning environments for all students. Read our letter to Chariman Sablan and Ranking Member Allen.
