Cedar Rapids schools to stop use of seclusion


Cedar Rapids Gazette: The Cedar Rapids Community School District will stop the use of seclusion in all school buildings and programs beginning Oct. 10, as a part of a settlement agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice. The district also will be making significant changes to limit the use of physical restraint and rethink how student behavior is analyzed and responded to, according to a news release from the district Monday. Seclusion rooms are used in many Iowa school districts as a last resort if students are at risk of harming themselves or others.
