Safe & Healthy Schools: Test Results
School districts, education service districts, and public charter schools were required by Oregon law to submit a 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.
This was accomplished by the District and in accordance with OAR 581-022-2223(5)(g) which states that the Healthy and Safe Schools Plan, the District must include a plan to communicate results for all tests required under the Healthy and Safe Schools Plan that includes information on the following areas:
Lead in Drinking Water
Lead Paint Certification
Integrated Pest Management
In addition, the school district or public charter school must make all test results available to the public within five business days of receiving the results by posting the results on the school district or public charter school website, sending notice of the results over the email system, and making the results available in hardcopy at the main administration office. Lastly, the school district or public charter school must provide detailed information explaining the test results.
