During the 2007 legislative session, Oregon legislators passed Senate Bill 379, “Child Abuse Training for School Employees, Parents and Students.” The law requires all school district and education service district employees to annually participate in child abuse prevention training.
Although most citizens are not mandatory reporters, we all have a responsibility to prevent child abuse and protect children. See the Oregon Department of Human Services booklet What you can do about child abuse.
The 2009 Oregon Legislative Assembly passed comprehensive legislation to address sexual grooming behavior (or “sexual conduct” ) by school employees toward students. As of July 1, 2010, all school district and education service district employees must annually participate in Staff to Students Sexual Misconduct training.
