 Introduction

Each school district, education service district, and public charter school must develop a Healthy and Safe Schools Plan for all buildings owned or leased by the school district or public charter school where students and staff are present on a regular basis.

 

School districts, education service districts, and public charter schools must submit a preliminary draft of the Healthy and Safe Schools Plan to the Department of Education on or before October 1, 2016. School districts, education service districts, and public charter schools must submit the final draft of the Healthy and Safe Schools Plan to the Department of Education on or before January 1, 2017. Thereafter, school districts, education service districts, and public charter schools must annually submit an updated Healthy and Safe Schools Plan if new buildings are acquired, constructed, or leased or if the plan is modified by the school district, education service district, or public charter school. Plans should be submitted to the Department of Education at schoolfacilities@ode.state.or.us.

 

Sections 1-7 of this plan set forth the required elements of a Healthy and Safe Schools. The final section of this plan, section 8, is not required.
