JULY BOARD MEETING

The regularly scheduled Board meeting has been moved to the third Monday, July 17, 2017.


CURRICULUM ADOPTION

On June 12, 2017 the Cascade School District Board of Education will be asked to approve the adoption of a K-5 curriculum (Safer, Smarter Kids) to meet the requirements of Senate Bill 856:  Sex Abuse Prevention Instruction.  While Cascade currently has curriculum in place in grades 6-12, we do not have curriculum to address this requirement at the elementary level.

In July of 2015, the Oregon Legislature passed SB 856 which requires schools provide child sexual abuse prevention instruction kindergarten through grade 12. 


The requirements of SB 856 include the following:

  • ·         A minimum of 4 instructional sessions (equal to or greater than a standard class period) of sex abuse prevention instruction per year for grades kindergarten through 12.
  • ·         Sexual abuse instruction is integrated and part of required district comprehensive sexuality education plan and is aligned with state standards.
  • ·         Instruction is age appropriate, medically accurate, and is not shame or fear based.
  • ·         Instruction is culturally inclusive and is responsive to diverse students including race, ethnicity, gender identity and sexual orientation.
  • ·         A parental involvement component to inform parents about child sexual abuse topics.
  • ·         A professional training component for administrators, teachers and other school personnel.
  • ·         An evaluation component with measurable outcomes.
  • ·         Trauma informed instruction and services.
