January 30, 2015
Yes, a student that has reached the legal age of 18 has the legal right to sign themselves in and out of school and sign their own permission slips regardless of where they live. Under Oregon law, when a student reaches the age of majority at 18 years, the student legally has control of their own actions and business, and has all the rights and is subject to all the liabilities of a citizen of full age. ORS 109.510.
