Isolating students in schools creates harm that is lifelong and disabling.
In this free webinar, we will spotlight findings from a new ACLU/Disability Rights Washington report and an Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI)-led legislative workgroup report on isolation and restraint practices in Washington state and discuss the impacts of isolation in K-12 schools, why this practice must end, and alternatives to isolation.
Spanish and ASL interpretation and closed captioning in English will be provided.
