Release of Promoting Positive Behavior in Schools, a Web-based Option for the Training Required by 704 KAR 7:160, Use of Physical Restraint in Public Schools - The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE), in partnership with Kentucky Educational Television (KET), has developed a web-based option for the annual training required of all school personnel, pursuant to Section 6(1) of 704 KAR 7:160, Use of Physical Restraint and Seclusion in Public Schools. Promoting Positive Behavior in Schools is a professional learning opportunity that focuses on positive behavioral supports and interventions to help school personnel increase appropriate student behaviors, decrease inappropriate or dangerous student behaviors and respond to unsafe situations. Positive intervention and support increases student engagement and instructional time, creating a school climate that can focus on college and career readiness.
This training consists of four (4) modules that include video footage from Kentucky schools that are effectively implementing positive behavioral intervention and support systems; endorsements of such systems by leaders from the behavior field, administrators and other school personnel; and video examples of evidence-based practices. The training also includes brief, focused, engagement activities.
To assist districts with
implementation of the regulation, the Kentucky Department of Education has created a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document. This
