The Virginia Department of Education’s Office of Dispute Resolution and Administrative Services presents series of modules to inform Virginia school personnel on the Regulations Governing the Use of Seclusion and Restraint in Public Elementary and Secondary Schools in Virginia. Successful completion of these modules and the cumulative quiz will result in a certificate that documents completion of the behavior intervention and support training requirements for initial licensure in Virginia.
