Legislation to protect children and staff members in schools passed the Indiana Senate Wednesday. Senate Bill 345 would establish a “Commission on Seclusion and Restraint in Schools”, to develop a model plan for Hoosier schools on the proper methods, standards, and training for student seclusion and restraint, with each school corporation having to develop its own plan, which would have to be approved by the commission. Bill author, Senator Randy Head, of Logansport, says, “there have reports of students dying due to the well-meaning, but misguided actions of untrained individuals in our schools...which is why Indiana schools need clear guidelines and staff training.” The bill now heads to the House for further consideration.
