This page is designed to provide information to those seeking assistance with complaints and to those individuals who are responsible for enforcement and oversight.
As a response to student, parent, and school district requests, the Oregon Department of Education, working with stakeholders, developed these guidelines to provide assistance for districts to foster an educational environment that is safe, free from discrimination, and aligned with state and federal laws. These guidelines are designed to be used by school boards, administrators, and other members of the educational community to guide development of school procedures and district policies related to transgender and gender nonconforming students.
