HCPSS MPIA Request #2024-035

Barb Krupiarz
Requested Information
During the 9/7/2023 Board of Ed meeting, Caroline Walker made 2 statements about which children were being restrained the most. She said that they can follow individual students through their HCPSS career being consistently restrained. She also said that the highest numbers were in the regional programs (about which I will send a separate note to the Board). I am requesting the number of restraints by school (for those over 10*) for the 2021-2022 and 2022-2023 school years. The Board can then follow up with further data on the staff members who are performing restraints to see what can be done to change their behavior rather than just being sad.
