Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports-Seclusion & Restraint bill introduced

Sen. Julie Lassa and Rep. Sandy Pasch have introduced a bill which encourages the use of Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports in schools and limits the use of seclusion and restraint in schools. DRW worked with these legislators on this bill and we will work to have successful committee hearings as the next step towards getting the bill passed.

The bills are SB 468 and AB 682. Since they are identical, we are only attaching SB 468. Click here to see the bill: SB 468
