Laws and policies for the use of restraint and seclusion in schools in North America

Today there is a patchwork of policies, guidelines, and regulations that differ from state to state and from school district to school district and setting to setting in terms of the use of restraint and seclusion.

We don’t believe that civil rights and human rights should not vary from state to state.

This document was created to help you learn more about the policies, guidelines, and regulations that might exist in your state.

This document was compiled by volunteers from the Alliance Against Seclusion and Restraint in the Fall of 2021. Laws and policies are constantly reviewed and updated across North America. Please visit your state or providence website to ensure you have the latest information.

This publication would not have been possible without our volunteer team. A huge thanks to Teresa Olafson for leading the project and all the team members that contributed.
