D67 Restraint, Time Out, and Isolated Time Out Plan

In accordance with the requirements set forth in 105 ILCS 5/2-3.130 and Public Act 102-0339, each school district board must create an oversight team that consists of, but is not limited to, teachers, paraprofessionals, school service personnel, and administrators to develop district-specific  plans that include procedures to reduce and eventually eliminate the use of physical restraint, time out, and isolated time out (RTO). On May 2, 2022, Dr. Kate Cavanaugh, Ms. JoAnn Ford-Halvorsen, and Dr. Jenny Sterpin met with the D67 Oversight Committee to develop a RTO plan to maintain zero incidents of physical restraint, time out, and isolated time out.  District 67 has had zero incidents of physical restraint, time out and isolated time out for the past 2 school years.  The goal of our plan is to maintain zero incidents through professional learning, individualized positive behavior support plans, oversight through the committee, and administrative supervision and support. The plan is linked here.  If you would like to read more information about Restraint, Time Out and Isolated Time Out, please click here.
