Seclusion Room Update
I haven't been writing much (obviously), and I have been reading the blogs I have on queue, but not taking the time to comment much (sorry!). I am focusing more energy on the seclusion room issue. I have been researching, gathering information, preparing to meet with my legislators, etc. I met with the special education administrator and some of the coordinators, and it was a good discussion. I was disheartened that all of the schools in the district except for one has a seclusion room in it. Apparently foster kids are scary? I am going to set up a separate blog regarding my efforts about seclusion room/time out/restraint policies in my district, and eventually the state. I am in this for the long haul, and I hear it can be a long, long haul.
