Seclusion and Restraint Presentation
DPI staff has developed a PowerPoint presentation with speaker notes on 2011 Wisconsin Act 125, which addresses the use of seclusion and physical restraint in public schools, including charter schools, and which applies to both regular and special education students. The PowerPoint provides information to districts, parents, and other stakeholders on the Act’s requirements and may be used for presentations. Act 125 goes into effect on September 1, 2012. The PowerPoint is embedded below. You can also click here to download from the DPI Special Education department’s website.
We have a trainer coming on-site during our August pre-service to train 80 staff on CPI Non-Violent Crisis Prevention. This is an intensive 8 hour long training. We will be doing two groups and splitting the training over two days, 4 hours each session.
