Protections Against Inappropriate Isolation & Restraint

Isolation and restraint of students with IEPs and/or 504 plans will generally be avoided and will not be used as a form of discipline or punishment. In instances when isolation and restraint are necessary to preserve the safety of students and school staff, the district authorizes the use of isolation and restraint under the limited circumstances defined in Policy 3246:聽English, Chinese, Spanish.

All instances of isolation and restraint of students with IEPs and/or 504 plans must be reported and reviewed, as described in Policy 3246.
