Recovery Schools Advisory Committee

HB 2767 directs the Department of Education to establish a limited number of "approved recovery schools" in Oregon. The bill requires the formation of an advisory committee to provide recommendations and guidance needed to assist in creating and sustaining approved recovery schools.

Advisory committee members will meet at least four times per year to advise on monitoring, technical assistance, legislation, and policy changes needed to create and sustain approved recovery schools. The Recovery Schools Advisory Committee (RSAC) will be comprised of up to 15 members who represent various experience with educating our youth, and understanding and navigating the issues that can lead students to substance use disorders. This committee will support the work of substance use disorder recovery for students in grades 9-12. Up to three schools may be approved and funded beginning in the 2023-25 biennium.

Advisory Committee members must include:

  • (a) Three members with experience in establishing or operating recovery schools.
  • (b) One member from the Department of Education.
  • (c) One member from the Youth Development Division.
  • (d) One member from the Alcohol and Drug Policy Commission.
  • (e) One member from the Oregon Health Authority.
  • (f) One member from local public health or mental health authorities or providers.
  • (g) One member who is a family member or caregiver of a student recovering from a substance use disorder and who has experience with recovery schools or assisting others with overcoming substance use disorders.
  • (h) One youth who has experience with a recovery school or who has overcome a substance use disorder.
  • (i) One member who is an administrator of a school district or an education service district, with a preference for an administrator who has experience collaborating with a recovery school.
