Emergency Safety Intervention (ESI)
The Shawnee Mission board of education is committed to only using Emergency Safety Interventions (ESI) such as seclusion and restraint when a student's conduct makes it absolutely necessary to protect the student, another student, or property. The board of education encourages all employees to try other behavior tools, including prevention techniques, de-escalation techniques, and positive behavioral intervention strategies.
