5630.01 – APPROPRIATE USE OF SECLUSION AND
The Wauwatosa School
district is committed to creating an environment that provides for the physical
safety and security of all students and staff. In instances when a
student’s behavior poses a threat to the safety of him/herself or others,
seclusion and restraint may be required. In these incidents, the
Wauwatosa School District applies the provisions of Wisconsin Act 125-Seclusion
and Physical Restraint.
Seclusion and restraint is only used as an emergency measure and is reserved
for those occasions when severely aggressive, combative, or destructive
behavior places the student or others in imminent danger.
The district shall prepare administrative guidelines in accordance with
Wisconsin Act 125. Principals or designee’s must document all incidents
of seclusion and restraint on the Wauwatosa School District Seclusion and
Restraint reporting form. The district will prepare an annual report for
the school board reporting incidents of seclusion and restraint.
