This bill requires that when the sheriff notifies the school district and school principal or institution’s department of public safety that a registered sex offender will be attending a school or institution of higher education, this notification will include the sentence imposed on the individual for conviction, in addition to the information already required. If the student is classified as a risk level I or is unclassified, the information received will be provided only to those who, in the judgment of the school district, school principal, or department of public safety, should be aware of the student’s record for security purposes. If the student is classified as a risk level II or III, the information received will be additionally be provided to the student’s teachers. If the student is classified as a risk level II or II, parents, legal guardians, and students over the age of 18, and any personnel who may come into contact with the student (including administrators, staff, bus drivers, security staff, coaches, playground supervisors, and maintenance personnel) will be notified. This notice will be made in writing (including by email) at the beginning of the school year and at any time a new student who is a registered sex offender enrolls and will include the name of the student, the crime of conviction, the sentence imposed, and, when possible, an internet link to a local law enforcement agency web site with additional information.

School districts shall also collect the addresses and email addresses of parents, legal guardians, students who are eighteen years of age or older, and school district personnel. This information will be collected prior to the beginning of the school year and at any time a student enrolls in a school or an employee is hired.
