From 5:00-5:45pm. OEA members successfully helped to pass Senate Bill 963 this year, updating the state’s restraint and seclusion law to ensure student and educator safety and dignity in schools. This law change was based on the OEA “Crisis of Disrupted Learning” report, published earlier this year. The new law is now in place! It clarifies when educators can appropriately use protective physical interventions and restraint when serious incidents occur. Hear from OEA General Counsel Adam Arms and OEA Consultant Erin Whitlock about the most significant changes in the law, how to ensure student and staff safety, and hear answers to the most common questions about restraint and seclusion.
