The state of Wyoming passed SF0036, a bill that requires the state superintendent and school district boards to adopt rules and regulations on restraint and seclusion in public schools.

The state superintendent must adopt the new rules by July 1, 2011. The school district boards must adopt them by December 31, 2011. The rules must establish policies regarding the use of restraint and seclusion, and they require that a parent or legal guardian of a student must be notified if restraint or seclusion is used.
