Palm Beach County School District Policy Reworked Several Times After BocaNewsNow.com Report On Proposal In March.

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Two months after BocaNewsNow.com reported exclusively on plans for the Palm Beach County School District to approve physical restraints for disabled children, the Palm Beach County School Board is now set to approve a significantly re-worded policy.
As we first reported exclusively on March 31st, the policy called for teachers and other staffers to use zip ties, straight jackets, and handcuffs in some situations. Advocates for disabled students objected — expressing shock and dismay that a school system would use physical restraint except in the most violent of circumstances. School officials listened and reworked the policy that is based on approved language from the State of Florida.
BocaNewsNow.com is publishing, in its entirety, the 21 page document set to be approved on June 1st. The updated policy is signed-off by School District Attorney Laura Pincus.
Public comment on the document is likely closed at this point — the agenda item will most likely be voted on before the public comment portion of the next School Board meeting.
