There will be an important State Advisory Panel Meeting Concerning Georgia Public Education for Special Needs Children on September 18th and September 19th at Unicoi State Park in Helen Georgia. Restraint and Seclusion Rule/Guidance is one topic on the agenda.
Here is the full agenda:
Public Comments can be given between 11:30 and 12 noon with a limit of 5 minutes and if possible comments should be provided in writing. At 1:00 p.m. there will be a discussion concerning state rule changes for restraints and seclusion room usage in public schools.
Unfortunately and disconcertingly, the proposed rule changes for restraint and seclusion have not been shared in advance of the meeting. The proposed changes will be shared as soon as we obtain a copy.
This meeting will be held at the lodge at Unicoi State Park in Helen, Georgia.
