LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - State education officials are working on
creating a regulation to limit the use of restraint and seclusion
in Kentucky's public schools.
This comes after the state Department of Education cited two
public schools for violating the rights of three special education
Documents obtained by The Associated Press through the state's
open records law detailed findings from the state investigations,
which were prompted by formal complaints from parents. The
investigations found that the students were left alone in small
rooms and, in at least one case, forcibly held down.
Because Kentucky has no law against using restraints or
seclusion, the schools were found in violation of the students'
rights to a free and appropriate public education.
Education department spokeswoman Lisa Gross says the regulation
likely won't be finalized until summer.
