OAR 416-435-0040
Placement and Housing Assignments

(1) The GIC will collect and review relevant information regarding transgender, gender nonconforming, or intersex offenders and make decisions on a case-by-case basis regarding appropriate placement, care, and management of the offenders.
(2) After an offender is placed in a youth correction facility, designated youth correction facility staff will determine and assign a transgender, gender nonconforming, or intersex offender to appropriate housing within the facility unless the offender’s housing assignment within the facility is specifically directed by the GIC.
(a) Staff may not require an offender to sleep in individual quarters or to be placed in specific housing based solely on their sexual orientation, gender identity, or intersex status.
(b) Staff may allow an offender who reports feeling safer sleeping in an individual room to do so when a room is available for such purpose. If an individual sleeping room is not available, staff must discuss alternative safety planning with the offender.
(3) An offender who identifies as transgender, gender nonconforming, or intersex may not be transferred to another youth correction facility without GIC approval, except during exigent circumstances. GIC approval is required for the offender’s continued placement as soon as possible after the exigent transfer.
(4) Offenders who identify as transgender, gender nonconforming, or intersex may request review of their placements by the GIC at any time.
