WILMINGTON -- An investigation found New Hanover County schools use of seclusion rooms does not violate state law.
The U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights investigation was finished at the end on August. It found the district was in compliance with the Greenblatt Act, which gives schools methods like seclusion rooms to deal with aggressive students.
The investigation was started in February after complaints from the parents of a 5-year-old special education student.
