Two-thirds of Oregon school districts are substantially compliant with the current legal/statutory requirements of the Oregon Safe Schools Act, according to a new report.

The Oregon Public Health Division, a PHLR grantee, has partnered with the Oregon Safe Schools & Communities Coalition (OSSCC), the Oregon Public Health Division, Q Center and OGALLA: The LGBT Bar Association of Oregon to collect and examine school district policy information from nearly all of Oregon’s 197 school districts.

The Oregon Safe Schools Act, which was signed into law in 2009, works to strengthen anti-bullying laws for K-12 public schools in Oregon.

The results of the evaulation can be found on pages 4-5 of the report.
