Educators are often faced with and rely on a reactionary crisis or emergency response in schools. The use of restraint can be physically painful and traumatic for both students and school staff. Additional negative impacts of restraint may lead to learning time loss, increased work cost for schools due to injury, and potential litigation.
Join us for a full day of presentations to enhance your understanding of the legislation and Texas Education Codes related to restraint. Keynote presentations by the Texas Education Agency and critical legal issues around restraint will be presented by Legal experts from Thompson & Horton, LLP.
Prevention is key to reduction in restraint. Prevention strategies will be provided in mini breakout sessions to support effective prevention strategies that lead to measurable reductions in the use of restraint. These mini sessions are supported by more intensive professional development opportunities provided at Region 4.
