Section 36 of the Student Success Act, and Senate Bill 52, also known as Adi’s Act, call for the creation of a School Safety and Prevention System (SSPS) to support the health and well-being of Oregon students and school communities.
The System is designed to provide school districts with a multi-tiered system of supports ranging from curriculum-based universal prevention programs, to safety-based crisis interventions. These offerings include suicide prevention services, behavioral safety assessments, access to the SafeOregon Tip Line, and positive school culture and climate support that includes programs to prevent bullying, cyberbullying, harassment, and intimidation, and to promote mental health and well-being in school districts statewide.
All of these services and supports align with ODE’s Integrated Model of Mental and Emotional Health in that they are equity and racial equity-centered, evidence-based, trauma-informed, and strengths-focused.
This system is being developed in collaboration with the Oregon Health Authority (OHA), and in partnership with Education Service Districts (ESDs).
