Disclaimer: The Illinois State Board of Education (hereinafter referred to as ISBE) is committed to providing all stakeholders with the most accurate information regarding the use of time out, Isolated time out, and physical restraint across Illinois. As of August 4, 2020, all educational entities that serve public education students were required to report these incidents to ISBE within two school days of the occurrence pursuant to Illinois Administrative Code (23 IAC 1.285). Prior to this date, local school districts, special education cooperatives, and nonpublic facilities did not have a uniform system to report these occurrences to ISBE nor did they have a collective understanding of the definitions for the use of time out, isolated time out, and physical restraint; therefore, ISBE cannot attest to the accuracy of the data collected from these entities before August 4, 2020.
