It’s Time to Prohibit Seclusion and Limit Use of Restraints in Schools

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.
