HB 2767 was signed in June 2023 establishing a limited number of approved recovery schools in Oregon. These schools under an agreement with the Department of Education, will provide students with a holistic approach to both education for grades 9 through 12 and health care services related to recovery from substance use disorders. The Department may contract with a school district, ESD, or public charter school to provide appropriate education to students enrolled in an approved recovery school.
A Request for Applications (RFA) will be published in May/June 2024 and up to three (3) contracts will be awarded for approved recovery schools later in the 2023-25 biennium.
An advisory committee was formed to provide recommendations and guidance related to monitoring, technical assistance, legislation, and policy change to assist in creating and sustaining approved recovery schools. Please see the
Recovery School Advisory Committee page for more details.
