In the News: "Q&A session will attempt to clarify MMSD restraint policies"

April 9, 2020

From The Cap Times:

"Much has been asked in the Madison community about when it’s appropriate for school staff to lawfully restrain a student after an altercation between an 11-year-old girl and positive behavior coach at Whitehorse Middle School in February. A question-and-answer session set for April 16 might provide some answers, according to organizers.

The panel is being hosted by Urban Triage, First Unitarian Society, the Community Response team and several members of the Building Capacity to Protect Black Children. Organizers hope the event will give a clearer understanding of how schools make a decision to use restraint or other physical contact with a student, particularly with students with special needs.

The event will be held at First Unitarian Society, 900 University Bay Drive, at 6 p.m."
