Senate Bill 710
was passed in the regular 2021 legislative session and outlines new provisions for what is prohibited and permissible relating to restraint and involuntary seclusion of children receiving services from licensed child-caring agencies. SB710 added new reporting requirements anytime restraints and involuntary seclusion are used on a child in care. It created new requirements for secure transportation service providers who have to become licensed as child caring agencies. This provision applies to any secure transport provider who is based in Oregon, transporting any child in care who resides in the State of Oregon or is being transported through Oregon to or from a school, an organization, and other child caring agencies.
The Children’s Care Licensing Program adopted temporary rules to meet the expectations defined by this legislation. The temporary administrative order CWP19-2021
outlines the amended and adopted rules.
