School Proximity Information

ORS 475A.305(2)(e) and OAR 333-333-4130(4) prohibit Oregon Psilocybin Services (OPS) from issuing a license to a service center located within 1,000 feet of a school. For purposes of measuring the 1,000 feet distance between a service center and a school “within 1,000 feet" means a straight-line measurement in a radius extending for 1,000 feet or less in any direction from the closest point anywhere on the boundary line of the real property comprising a school to the closest point of the licensed premises of a service center. OAR 333-333-4130(4)(b).

It is the applicant's responsibility to ensure the location of the service center is not within 1,000 feet of a school.

The licensed premises of a service center may not be located:
  • Except as provided in ORS 475A.310, within 1,000 feet of:
    • A public elementary or secondary school for which attendance is compulsory under ORS 339.020; or
    • A private or parochial elementary or secondary school, teaching children as described in ORS 339.030.
The Psilocybin School Exclusion Map was developed by Oregon Psilocybin Services to support applicants with the process of identifying if a proposed location is within 1,000 feet of a school to comply with ORS 475A.310. The mapping tool is being updated regularly but may contain inaccuracies. Please do not rely solely on this tool for making a determination for a proposed location.

While the exclusion map tool may be used as a reference to locate possible schools near the proposed location, private schools are not required to register with Oregon Department of Education (ODE), and the information captured by the tool may be incomplete. For more information, the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) Public and Private School Directory can be found below.

Oregon Department of Education (ODE)'s Public and Private School Directory

ORS 475A.310 creates an exception for a proposed service center premises that is located more than 500 feet from a school if OPS determines that there is a physical or geographic barrier capable of preventing children from traversing to the proposed service center premises. Examples of a physical barrier include a prison or an interstate highway. Examples of a geographic barrier include a river or a mountain. Private properties, small streams, or property fences would not meet the criteria for a school exclusion exception request.

To meet the criteria for a school exclusion exception, the applicant must demonstrate that a physical or geographic barrier exists and demonstrate that the barrier would prevent children from traversing to the proposed licensed premises. If OPS determines that the physical or geographic barrier meets the criteria, an applicant may be granted a school exclusion exception.

To apply for a school exclusion exception, an applicant must complete the School Exclusion Exception Request Form and submit all the information required to be submitted along with the form.
