re: Superintendent Holliday, how

I'm not Supt. Holliday, but I will answer the question. Would this room be ok for your child? Yes,absolutely the room that I see in the picture would be an appropriate/time-out seclusion room for my child if he cannot control his behavior appropriately in the classroom setting. And by controlling his behavior, I mean sitting there in class quietly, paying attention to the teacher who is teaching, and not disturbing the other students around him who are also in the room for the purpose of receiving an education. As someone who has worked in the field of behavioral health for 20 years, I am very well aware that when a special needs child acts out, that behavior is a form of communication. That communication of a need should be noted and dealt with. However, the right of another child to act out and disrupt the classroom ends where my child's right to have a calm classroom environment that is conducive to learning begins.
