  • In November, 2015, this office issued an Education Client Alert concerning a new, electronic Restraint Reporting Form posted by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (“DESE”). On January 5, 2016, the Department updated it guidance and determined that public education program’s use of the Restraint Reporting Form will be optional. However, public education programs will still be required to annually submit all of the information reflected in the Restraint Reporting Form spreadsheet.
