When a student who has been identified as a student sex offender is placed in a District school, the Administration shall, to the extent possible, immediately:
- Schedule a meeting with the student and the student’s parents to address any specific special concerns of the District or the parent regarding the student’s education and his/her presence upon school grounds;
- Confer with the student’s probation/parole officer, if possible, to address any special considerations or concerns which need to be addressed regarding the student’s education as well as any considerations regarding the safety of other school students and school faculty; This would include a request to obtain a copy of the student’s “after care plan” and terms and conditions of their probation.
- Confer with the student’s counselor, therapist or other treatment provider that may provide services to the student;
- Engage in necessary steps to evaluate and determine whether the student is eligible for special education services and/or if an alternative educational setting will better meet the needs of the student.
- Develop a plan in conjunction with the student, the student’s parents, probation/parole, school administration and any one else deemed appropriate by the school administration to address any considerations or concerns relative to the student’s education as well as the safety of other school students and school faculty. Any such plan shall be based upon the individual factual circumstances of each applicable student.
The Administration shall, as in any other confidential student matter, take all steps necessary to assure that only necessary school personnel are advised of the status of the student, the existence of a plan and the specific terms of the plan at issue.
If an individual employed by the District and holding knowledge of the existence of a plan relating to a student who is a registered sex offender observes or learns of any action which would be contrary to the student’s plan, the District employee is directed to immediately notify the District’s Administration of the student’s action.
