Webinar: Regulation of Restraint and Seclusion in Virginia’s Schools: What Parents Should Know (PEATC) January 26, 2021 6:30pm-7:30pm


Hosted by PEATC, this webinar is presented by John Cimino and Kerry Chilton, attorneys with the Disability Law Center of Virginia (dLCV).

Although the use of restraint and seclusion in private schools for students with disabilities has been regulated for years in Virginia, the use of these practices in public schools was not subject to statewide regulation until newly adopted regulations took effect in January, 2021. This presentation will address when restraint and seclusion may, and when they may not be used by school personnel; documentation and reporting requirements; personnel training requirements; mandatory school policies and procedures; and other relevant regulatory provisions that parents should be aware of in the new restraint and seclusion regulations.
