Oregon schools may have to notify families of safety threats | #hacking | #aihp

The Oregon Legislature is considering a bill that would require schools to electronically notify families and employees of safety threats.

House Bill 3584 requires school district boards to adopt policies for notifying parents, guardians and school employees when a school goes into lockdown, shelter-in-place or evacuates in response to a safety threat, and of the resolution, all within 24 hours.

“For some students, especially re-traumatized students, this is critical,” Dana Stroud, a parent in the Gresham-Barlow School District, told legislators. “We are limited in how we can support our children if the school does not give us adequate communication.”

Lack of information

Rep. Ricki Ruiz, D-Gresham, is a chief sponsor of the bill.
