New regulations regarding the use in Kansas schools of "restraint and seclusion" of students with severe behavioral disorders were adopted by the state board of education on Wednesday. Board members voted 9-1 to approve the regulations, despite objections from some disability advocates over the lack of a process in place for appealing the new regulations to the state Education Department. The board then directed staff to draft regulations that include an appeals process for parents who disagree with the way local school boards are implementing the rules.
