We support HB972 because it establishes minimum safety standards for the use of restraint and seclusion in schools. Mississippi is one of few states that lacks a statewide policy restricting and reducing the use of restraint and seclusion in schools and learning environments. This Act addresses that and helps to keep our students safe.
