Online registration running for special KSBA one-day conference on the state’s new student restraint and seclusion regulation July 15 in Lexington

Now that the Kentucky Board of Education has adopted final revisions to 704 KAR 7:160 – the new rules regarding physical restraint and seclusion of students – school personnel are looking for answers on how the regulation will affect them when classes start this fall.

KSBA has scheduled a full day of legal and policy training regarding the new regulation on Monday, July 15 at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Lexington. 

This training will flesh out the Kentucky statutes that are cited in the regulation that concern the type of property damage and disruption for which students can be restrained. This session also will provide districts tips about what information needs to be recorded on incident reports, what needs to be documented during a debriefing session and other topics including:

• When should staff physically restrain/seclude students?
• The meaning of references to KRS Chapter 503 in the Restraint and Seclusion Regulation
• Documenting the incident
• The debriefing session
• The complaint process
• KSBA Model Policy and Procedure

Staff presenters include Teresa Combs, director of KSBA’s Legal and Administrative Training service; John Fogle III, KSBA staff attorney; and members of the KSBA Policy Service team.

Online registration is now available here:

As of today, registration is nearing the 100 mark, but plenty of slots are still available. Registration is $165 per person (lunch provided) for the first three people from a district, $110 for the fourth and fifth and $100 for any additional staff and/or board members who take part.  Note: Online registration formatting only allowed the $165 rate, but the fees for additional staff will be adjusted on invoices.
