Does your complaint involve:
(select all that apply)
Division 22 standards are educational standards that either the Oregon legislature or the State Board of Education has determined are necessary. They are codified in Oregon Administrative Rules Chapter 581, Division 22.
Discrimination occurs when a person is treated differently, whether intentionally or unintentionally, on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, marital status, age, or disability.
Restraint and Seclusion
Restraint occurs when a person restricts a student’s movement by holding the student or applying physical pressure upon the student. Seclusion occurs when a student is involuntarily confined in a room without access to staff and is prevented from leaving the room.
Retaliation occurs when a person makes a decision that adversely affects a student because the student reported evidence that the student believed to be a violation of law.
Under Oregon law, a public school may not financially support or be actively involved with religious activity.
