It is the policy of the Board of Education that seclusion, isolation and restraint are to be used only in response to emergency or crisis situations and should:
a.) not be viewed as a behavior change or intervention strategy,
b.) be implemented only under extreme situations and as a matter of last resort,
c.) be implemented only by trained personnel, and
d.) be accompanied by district-wide pro-active positive supports to prevent the need for their use.
This policy applies to all students.
The Board hereby incorporates in this Policy the requirements and provisions of Regulation 2606, as now existing or may hereafter be amended, which shall at all times be consistent with and satisfy all the requirements of Section 160.263 of the Missouri Statutes.
