The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) states that all children can go to school and have a fair chance to learn.
Children with disabilities have the right to go to school with their neighbors and sit in the classroom together. They can join school clubs, go on field trips, attend school plays, and go to school sports events. Children are not separated because they have a disability.
Restraint and Seclusion
Children with disabilities cannot live up to their potential if their classroom is a place of fear and violence. In 2006, in response to an increase in complaints by parents and teachers, our Special Education staff launched a targeted initiative to reduce the use of restraint and seclusion of students with disabilities as a disciplinary measure.
