In order to protect students while they are traveling to and from school, attending school or at a school-related activity, the Governing Board believes it is important that the District respond appropriately when a law enforcement agency contacts the District about registered sex offenders who may reside or work within District boundaries.

The Superintendent or designee shall establish an ongoing relationship with law enforcement officials to coordinate the receipt and dissemination of such information. To the extent authorized by law, the Superintendent or designee also shall establish procedures for notifying appropriate staff as necessary.

To protect the district and its employees from liability, employees shall disseminate sex offender information in good faith, and only in the manner and to the extent authorized by the law enforcement agency.

The Superintendent or designee shall annually notify parents/guardians of the availability of information about registered sex offenders on the Department of Justice’s Internet website.
