2013 State of the Safe Schools Act Report

2013 State of the Safe Schools Act Report

As the new school year begins, Oregon Safe Schools & Communities Coalition is excited to announce the October 4th release of the Third Annual State of the Safe Schools Act report to our members, coalition partners and community leaders. This report has been created through a partnership with OGALLA: The LGBT Bar Association of Oregon, Q Center, Oregon Public Health Division and the Oregon Department of Education.

Over the past several months, OSSCC, Q Center, and OGALLA have collected, read, and evaluated each anti-bullying/safe schools policy from every school district in Oregon (nearly 200!), based on a checklist of requirements contained in the current statute. Policies were divided into “gold star” (exceeding expectations); “silver star” (meeting expectations); and “bronze star” (not meeding expectations/no policy available for review).

We invite you to read last year’s State of the Safe Schools Act report and find out how your local school district measured up! OGALLA is willing to provide feedback to any district that wishes to find out more about the rankings. And check back on October 4th for the 3rd Send an email to: info@ogalla.org, or contact OSSCC with any questions.
