An investigation led by the state Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction earlier this year found that special services staff in Evergreen Public Schools had violated several state protocols regarding the use and reporting of physical restraints on students at Sunset Elementary School.

As a result of the findings, Evergreen was required to provide training on what constitutes a restraint, when a physical intervention becomes a restraint, appropriate alternatives to physical interventions and how to properly report and follow up on incidents with students, families and staff.
