  • Discipline should be equitable, timely, fair, developmentally appropriate, and match the severity of the student’s behavior

  • Discipline should start at the lowest level possible

Implications of bullying legislation (Oregon HB 2599)

  • Requires uniform reporting procedures for bullying throughout the district

  • Review current policy and directive (4.30.060-P and 4.30.061-AD)

  • Look for update of supports from Student Services and IT

Implications of legislation relating to disclosure of information about student involved in the justice system (Oregon HB 512)

  • This legislation requires school administrators to notify staff when student are charged with a serious criminal offense

  • Staff is not allowed to talk to students about the charges

  • We will provide schools notice when one of their students has a charge pending

  • We will also provide notice when the charge has been dropped or the youth has been adjudicated
