 Portal Collection Log In Link

The department is required to collect restraint and seclusion data from each local or regional board of education, institution or facility that provides direct care, education or supervision of persons at risk. The Restraint and Seclusion database collects compliance data that identifies the frequency of use of physical restraint and/or seclusion and specifies whether the use of such seclusion was in accordance with an individualized education program (IEP) or whether the use of physical restraint or seclusion was an emergency. Department policy requires all instances of injury (both serious and non-serious) associated with the use of restraint or seclusion to be reported to the CSDE within 2 business days.
