What is House Bill 2062?

House Bill 2062, was passed by the Oregon State Legislature in 2009 and is now included in ORS 339.370.  It requires that district boards adopt a policy on reporting sexual conduct by a district employee that is directed toward a student.  It modifies hiring procedures for districts as well as impacting information shared through the employee reference process.

Central Point School District is committed to providing a learning environment free of all forms of abuse, assault, harassment, and coercive conduct, including sexual misconduct.
