“2013 State of the Safe Schools Act” Report Released!

2013 State of the Safe Schools Act Report

2013 State of the Safe Schools Act Report

As the school year begins to wind down, Oregon Safe Schools & Communities Coalition is excited to present the second 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 year, OSSCC and OGALLA have collected, read, and evaluated each anti-bullying/safe schools policy from every school district in Oregon, 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 the 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. Send an email to: info@ogalla.org, or contact OSSCC with any questions.
