Viewing Policy: BP 3515.5 Sex Offender Notification



 

Sex Offender Notification

 

 

In order to protect students while they are traveling to and from school, or attending school or a school-related activity, the San Benito County Board of Education (County Board) believes it is important that the San Benito County Office of Education (SBCOE) respond appropriately when a law enforcement agency notifies SBCOE about registered sex offenders who may reside or work within San Benito County Alternative Education 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 SBCOE 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.
