ODE developed a PowerPoint training with an assessment component which will demonstrate knowledge and awareness in reducing anabolic steroid and performance-enhancing substance use by school-age children. School districts may also utilize programs such as the Oregon Health and Science University’s Athletes Training and Learning to Avoid Steroids (ATLAS) and Athletes Targeting Healthy Exercise and Nutrition Alternatives (ATHENA).
It is required of all school district employees* who are coaches or athletics directors to receive training once every four years on identifying the components of anabolic steroid abuse and use and prevention strategies for the use of performance-enhancing substances.
*ORS 342.721 (3) School district employee means: (a) An administrator, teacher or other person employed by a school district;(b) A person who volunteers for a school district; and a person who is performing services on behalf of a school district pursuant to a contract.
The assessment is required once every four years. If the employee changes school districts, the employee must provide the new school district with a copy of the “Notification of Completion”.
NOTE: The training does NOT produce an automated response, however, at the end of the assessment, a page is provided to be printed as the Notification of Completion. Be prepared at the start of the assessment to print the Notification of Completion.
