• Restraint and Seclusion


    On March 9, 2012, the State Board of Education adopted new administrative rules on the use of physical restraint and seclusion (OAR 581-021-0550, 0553, 0556, 0559 0563, and 0566). Effective July 1, 2012 the district was required to update the policy and subsequent practice to align with the new ruling.

    Part of the requirements include an annual report detailing the use of physical restraint and seclusion for the previous school year be presented to the school board and made available to the public. The annual report is a public record that is to be kept permanently.

    The annual reporting requirements include all incidents of restraint and seclusion occurring the previous year beginning July, and must include the following information:

    The number of restraints, the number of seclusions, the number of seclusions in a locked room, the number of students placed in physical restraint, the number of students placed in seclusion, the number of incidents that resulted in injury or death, the total number of students who were placed in a restraint or secluded more than 10 times. Additionally, the Department asks for race/ethnicity, gender, disability, migrant status, ELL status and whether the student is economically disadvantaged.


    The reports for the last few years are available below.
