Substitute for HB 2170 will be voted on THIS WEEK in the full Kansas House.  This bill addresses the concerns of parents and the disability community regarding the use of the dangerous tactics of restraint and seclusion in public schools.  The bill is based on the current regulations, but it fixes the flaws in that policy. It provides the statutory structure to effectively address this problems once and for all. 

Substitute for HB 2170 also follows the common-sense recommendations from the US Dept. of Education on restraint and seclusion. It is supported by Kansas families and 30 Kansas disability organizations. Even the Kansas Association of School Boards is neutral on the bill. The bill ensures accountability and school safety in a reasonable and fair manner. This bill would create common sense standards to protect students and teachers alike from the dangerous use of restraint and seclusion. The bill has no fiscal cost.
