The bill comes after recent incidents in Middletown, where special education students at Farm Hill Elementary School were reportedly isolated in “scream rooms” during outbursts.
Federal education officials have launched a civil rights investigation into a Connecticut elementary school’s practice of isolating students with disabilities in small rooms when they have emotional outbursts.
Parents vented their anger Thursday night at a packed Farm Hill Elementary PTA meeting. Much of the shouting concerned the school’s use of so-called “quiet” rooms, where teachers would send misbehaving students.
Two “time-out” rooms were implemented two years ago for special needs students. But with growing community concern about their use, the school district drafted a new support plan to deal with students who act up.
