    ESI Concerns (New)
    If you have concerns, you have options when the school uses restraint or seclusion on your child. There are four ways to voice your concerns: 

    1. Request to hold a meeting with the school about the ESI.
    2. Request a meeting with the principal.
    3. File a written complaint with the local school board within 30 days after you were told about the incident.
    4. If you do not get a decision from the local school board within 30 days or you do not agree with the decision of the local school board’s investigation, request an administrative review by the state board of education.
