We thank you for your interest and devotion towards the Restraint and Seclusion policy. As we move forward with our policy, we encourage everyone to reach out to their State representatives to encourage their participation in this change as well.
The Board welcomes feedback from our community and one of the easiest ways to share your thoughts is to send an email to [email protected], which will go to every Board member. Additionally, at the beginning of each Board meeting we invite public comment. Alternately, reach out to one of your neighbors who is on the school board and share your thoughts in a personal email or phone call (see a list of Board members and contact information at https://tinyurl.com/523wtrnj).
