Wisconsin Family Ties’ advocacy contributes to the passage of Senate Bill 527, amending Wisconsin’s seclusion & restraint law.

Passed by the Assembly on February 20, 2020, the Bill now heads to Governor Evers for his signature! Among other improvements to the law, the amendment will require school districts to provide seclusion & restraint incidence data to the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (not just to school boards); require schools to provide written incident reports to parents (not just notify them that the report exists); and outlaw prone restraints.
