GAAFKansas regulations require the adoption of written policies to govern the use of Emergency Interventions in all schools. Emergency Safety Intervention (ESI) is defined as seclusion and restraint that is used when the student presents an immediate danger to self or others. Lawrence Public School’s Board of Education adopted an ESI policy (GAAF) on October 28, 2013 which is available on the district’s website. This policy will also be available on the building websites and online handbooks as of November 14, 2014. If you need a hard copy of the ESI policy, please contact your building principal.
No Child Left Behind
The “No Child Left Behind” legislation was signed into law by President Bush in January 2002. Contained within this legislation are regulations regarding highly qualified teachers in classrooms. You have the right to request information on the professional qualifications of your child’s classroom teachers. If you want this information, please contact David Cunningham, Division Director of Human Resources for Lawrence Public Schools (785-832-5000).
