This study examines how the courts have addressed the restraint, detainment, and seclusion of students in public schools. The study includes an analysis of 100 court cases on the topic of restraint, detainment, and seclusion of students in public schools, which occurred in state and federal jurisdictions, from 1977 to 2012. Cases were examined over time and by prevailing party, constitutional claim(s), grade range, student population, and type of seizure. The analysis revealed guiding principles to help educators and school administrators protect the constitutional rights of students and avoid potential litigation. The analysis also formulated a set of guidelines for educators and school administrators to use in situations where the need for student seizure may arise.
