CTE Civil Rights

The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) actively supports the mission of the Office for Civil Rights: "to ensure equal access to a high quality education for all students through the vigorous enforcement of civil rights."

Each year approximately three (3) high schools and two (2) community colleges, are targeted for an onsite review, as required by the US Department of Education (USDOE). Comprehensive reviews are conducted to prevent discrimination and ensure equal access to programs, courses and the information therein, for each Oregon student. ODE also provides technical assistance to help institutions achieve voluntary compliance with the civil rights laws enforced by the USDOE Office for Civil Rights.
