Brookings-Harbor School District
Local Control Resolution 2021

WHEREAS, the Brookings-Harbor School District 17C Board of Directors stands resolute in our dedication to ensuring that the mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing of the youth and employees of the District are at the forefront of all decisions made by the Board.

WHEREAS, the BHSD embraces local and regional data to make the most informed and appropriate decisions, in particular those that are related to COVID-19. The District believes that a “one-size-fits-all” strategy is not the best or appropriate method of managing Oregon School Districts.  

WHEREAS, the BHSD will and has been actively working with our local public health agency and Oregon Health Authority on all matters related to COVID-19.

WHEREAS, as leaders, our priority is to advocate for the community we have been elected to serve.

WHEREAS, as leaders, we recognize that we are role models for the youth, district employees, and the community and will act in a manner that reflects the commitments in this resolution.  

WHEREAS, the Board believes that the staff, volunteers, and coaches who dedicate their purpose in life to educating, encouraging, and caring about the youth, are more than qualified to make their own health decisions.

Now, therefore be it resolved on this 15th day of September 2021, the Board of the Brookings-Harbor School District 17c, formally requests that Governor Brown return local control to each individual elected school board. Change the 2021-22 Ready Schools, Safe Learners Resiliency Framework COVID-19 from requirements to recommendations. Remove vaccine mandates for all educational staff, volunteers, and coaches, and allow superintendents and locally elected school boards to develop strategies and policies that best suit the unique communities we represent.     

ADOPTED 15th day of September 2021
