Seclusion Boxes or Time Out Boxes in Utah Schools? Legal!

Oh, my! I was wondering if they are doing this in Utah Schools, and found no evidence online. However, I did find it written into Utah Law!

R277-609-1. Definitions.

A. “Board” means the Utah State Board of Education.

B. “Discipline” includes:

(1) imposed discipline; and

(2) self-discipline.

C. “Disruptive student behavior” includes:

(1) the grounds for suspension or expulsion described in Section 53A-11-904; and

(2) the conduct described in Subsection 53A-11-908(2)(b).

D. “Emergency safety intervention” means the use of seclusionary time out or physical restraint when a student presents an immediate danger to self or others, and the intervention is not for disciplinary purposes.

Now see the article that prompted my looking this up here.
