Civil Rights and Equity


Pursuant to requirements of the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights, the Methods of Administration (MOA) program is responsible for identifying, remedying, and preventing discrimination in all secondary and postsecondary schools that offer Career and Technical Education. The MOA program's goal is to ensure there is no discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, religion, national origin, age, or disability in Oregon schools and provide a robust understanding, implementation, and enforcement of the following civil rights laws in Oregon Schools.

  • Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 34 CFR Part 100
  • Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 ED Title IX Regulations, 34 CFR Part 106
  • Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section 504, 34 CFR Part 104.3
  • Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and its implementing regulations, 28 CFR Part 35
  • Guidelines for Eliminating Discrimination and Denial of Services on the Basis of Race, Color, National Origin, Sex and Handicap in Vocational Education, 45 CFR Part 80, Appendix B
The Oregon Department of Education's Mission and Equity Stance, and the Higher Education Coordinating Commission's Vision--as well as historical and current events--have significantly shaped the process for the MOA program. Our collective commitment to equity and access to education for all students in Oregon is evident throughout Oregon's MOA Plan. We are committed to consistently and effectively interrupting historical and current patterns of neglect and oppression in order to create and ensure educational equity.
