Supporting Students with Oregon and Federal Civil Rights Law
Presenter: Marinda Peters, ODE Civil Rights Specialist, and Kate Hildebrandt, ODE Civil Rights Specialist
Students in Oregon K-12 schools are protected by federal and state civil rights laws that entitle them to equal treatment. This full-day session will focus on understanding and implementing Title IX and Oregon civil rights law that protects students from discrimination based on sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity. Topics addressed will include: compliance requirements of Title IX and Oregon law, sexual harassment policies, single-sex education programs, support for LGBTQ2SIA+ students, and more. Participants will have the opportunity to connect with colleagues across the state to discuss scenarios and to address frequently asked questions. This session is appropriate for anyone who is designated as a Title IX Coordinator or who has responsibility for implementing Oregon or federal civil rights law.
