School Framework and Safety Planning

The Oregon Department of Education has shared guidance that empowers school district leaders - in partnership with local public health - to make decisions about how to implement health and safety protocols.  Check out the ODE Ready Schools, Safe Learners Resiliency Framework (updated 1/27/22) for the 2021-22 School Year that outlines mandatory requirements and advisory health and safety strategies for Oregon schools.

The vast majority of health and safety protocols are advisory for the 2021-22 school year. The switch to advisory means school districts and public charter schools will have the option to implement, although NWCSD will be practicing a layering of the following mitigation strategies for optimal safety.


Key measures that remain required include: Face Coverings, maintaining a communicable disease plan, maintaining an isolation space in schools and submitting a plan for operation.
