Survival Coalition Celebrates Governor Evers’ Signature on Act 118

The Survival Coalition of Wisconsin Disability Organizations thanks Governor Evers for his signature today on Act 118, the seclusion and restraint bill, that will further ensure students are protected from harmful practices, support schools and keep parents informed.

The bill includes common-sense changes to the state’s current seclusion and restraint law including requiring schools to report annually to the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction about how frequently these practices are occurring and requiring schools to provide a written incident report to parents, (current law only requires that parents be notified that the report exists).  See full Press Release
