Policy No. 4315
Community Relations

Public agencies are authorized to release relevant and necessary information regarding sex and kidnapping offenders to the public when the release of the information is necessary for public protection. Law enforcement agencies receive relevant information about the release of sexual and kidnapping offenders into communities and decide when such information needs to be released to the public. The school district has a public safety role to play in the dissemination of such information to staff, parents, students, and the community and will disseminate such information under the following conditions:

  • Receipt of a specific request from a law enforcement agency that information be disseminated to staff and/or students and parents. In every case where students are notified, parents will be notified as soon as possible.
  • Receipt of the actual documents to be distributed. The district may duplicate the documents, but they will be distributed in form received from the law enforcement agency.
