Tell the House to advance SHB 1479!
SHB 1479 has been pulled from the Rules Committee and is now waiting to be voted off of the House floor. We need to ensure that all of our legislators vote yes on this bill!
We all benefit when strategies to address challenging behaviors in classrooms work. The use of isolation and restraint doesn’t work, and according to research, the recent report from Disability Rights Washington and the ACLU of Washington, and The OSPI Crisis Response Workgroup Report, it actually increases harm to students and staff and makes things worse.
Contact your legislators and ask them to vote yes on SHB 1479.
