Advocates are urging reintroduction of the Keeping All Students Safe Act, which was previously introduced by Rep. George Miller in 2013 during the 113th Congress. The bill establishes federal minimum safety standards to limit the use of restraint and seclusion, requires school officials to be trained and certified before practicing restraint, and bans the use of mechanical and chemical restraints.
