Restraint Prevention Project
Sponsored by The Education Law Resource Center

The use of physical restraints are becoming more prevalent in public schools. Deciding whether or not to physically restrain a student requires that school personnel have a clear understanding legal requirements, professional standards, and health and safety issues.

The Education Law Resource Center announces formation of the Restraint Prevention Project.

Restraint Prevention Project

The goal of the Restraint Prevention Project is to reduce or eliminate the use of physical restraints in schools through training in de-escalation techniques and other methods of addressing behavior. The project also seeks to ensure that if restraints are used, they are used by properly trained staff in order to protect the safety of students and staff.

The Education Law Resource Center is providing funding to help offset the costs for educators and other professionals who attend training programs about behavior management, de-escalation techniques, and physical restraints.

A percentage of the profits from the book, Preventing Physical Restraints in Schools: A Guide for Parents, Educators & Professionals by Scott Johnson, Esq. is funding the project.

Who is Eligible?

The program is open to anyone who is responsible for addressing student behavior in public and private schools, including classroom teachers.

How to Apply

A volunteer Selection Committee selects the applicants who will receive funding. This is a competitive process.

Applicants provide information about the training program they want to attend and explain why the Project should provide them with funds for the training program.

The Selection Committee chooses the applicants who will receive funding based on a number of factors that are explained in the Application for Funds available online at the Education Law Resource Center.

Please download the Application for Funds online from www.edlawrc.com and follow the directions in the application documents.

Deadlines

Funds are awarded twice a year.

The application deadlines are October 7, 2005 and May 26, 2006.

Applicants will be notified if they were selected to receive funding about 30 days after those dates.

For more information, please visit the Education Law Resource Center site at www.edlawrc.com.
