pamphlet about the use of Restraints and Seclusions.
The school's SSC serves as a catalyst for bringing together school-based resources with targeted community resources to support students. The SSCs implement a system to address barriers to learning so all students have an equal opportunity to achieve at school. Success in this role requires interdisciplinary leadership and skills development training to effectively coordinate resources and engaging families and communities.
