8470 - Community Notification of Registered Sexual Predators/Sex Offenders

The Board will cooperate with the sheriff and chiefs of police with their statutory requirement for mandatory community notification of sexual predators and optional community notification with regard to sex offenders as required by the Public Safety Information Act, 1997.

Distribution of Information Provided to School

  A. All posters and/or other information provided directly to schools by the sheriff or chief of police will be maintained by the school for review by parents, students, and other members of the public. The principal will maintain an updated binder system of offenders for review by parents, students, and other members of the public. This is the primary means of notification to schools for the purpose of community notification within each law enforcement jurisdiction.

 

  B. All posters and/or other information provided directly to the Office of Public Safety by the sheriff or chief of police will be distributed to all schools within the District. The principal will also include this information of offenders in the updated binder system of offenders for review by parents, students, and other members of the public. This is a secondary means of notification to schools for the purpose of community notification within each law enforcement jurisdiction and is meant to be supplemental.

 

Public Meetings

School(s) will assist law enforcement jurisdictions with public meetings with regard to community notification by providing space for the meetings when such facilities are requested of the principal. The content and general conduct of the meeting is the responsibility of the local law enforcement jurisdiction.

Direct Public Notification by Schools

It is the legislated responsibility of the sheriff or chief of police to make direct community notification with regard to sex offenders and/or sexual predators. In an effort to be consistent with the statute, neither the District office nor the schools will engage in direct public notification.
