Bill Could Tighten Restraints on Students


A bill in the Oregon Legislature would tighten restrictions on when schools can put students in restraints.  Michael German says when his son Connor acted out and needed to be restrained, it was difficult getting answers from the District. He says first they didn’t respond to them and then they didn’t want to help them. The group "Disability Rights Oregon" says not all states keep track of schools that use restraints on students.  But of those that do, Oregon ranks near the top. Oregon tightened laws in 2007. This bill would limit the type of restraints and require better notification for parents.
