4.3. First Reading of New & Revised Policies
Presenter:  Dr. Paul Hillyer, Superintendent
Description: 
NARRATIVE
 
BACKGROUND

On September 17, 2020, the Oregon State Board of Education adopted temporary Oregon Administrative Rule (OAR) 581-022-2312 - All Students Belong. This rule took effect the following day and takes an unprecedented step to protect some of our schools’ most marginalized students, as well as staff and others. As an OAR Chapter 581 Division 22 requirement, districts, ESDs and public charter schools will be required to verify that they are in compliance.

This rule requires that districts, ESDs, public charter schools and others receiving state funding for education adopt a policy prohibiting symbols of hate and addressing bias incidents by January 1, 2021.

This rule prohibits the "use or display" of symbols of hate, including the noose, swastika, and confederate flag. The policy that you adopt must reflect this prohibition. 

The rule also defines a "bias incident" and requires related procedures and requirements. Because these requirements are unique to bias incidents, we have created a separate complaint procedure. 

ACB All Students Belong:  Policy prohibiting symbols of hate and addressing bias incidents.

ACB-AR (Administrative Regulation):  Complaint procedure process for policy ACB All Students Belong.
