3143 - District Notification of Juvenile Offenders



A court will notify the common school in which a student is enrolled if the student has been convicted, adjudicated, or entered into a diversion agreement for any of the following offenses: violent offense, sex offense, fire arms offense, inhaling toxic fumes, drug offense, liquor offense, assault, kidnapping, harassment, stalking, or arson. The principal must inform any teacher of the student and any other personnel who should be aware of the information. The information may not be further disseminated.

A student accepted for enrollment who has been convicted, adjudicated, or entering into a diversion agreement for an assault, kidnapping, harassment, stalking, or arson against a teacher shall not be assigned to that teacher’s classroom during the duration of the student’s attendance at that school or any school to which the teacher is assigned. Neither shall the student be assigned to a classroom where another student who was his or her victim for the offense is enrolled.

The state department of social and health services will notify the district in writing at least thirty days before a juvenile convicted of a violent offense, a sex offense or stalking is discharged, paroled, given authorized leave or otherwise released to reside in the district. The department will also notify the district if any adjudicated victims of a juvenile sex offender are registered with the department and on record as attending a school within the district that the juvenile sex offender might otherwise attend.

Convicted juvenile sex offenders shall not be allowed to attend a school attended by their adjudicated victims or a victim’s sibling. The offender and his or her parent/guardian shall be responsible for providing transportation or covering other costs related to the offender’s attendance at another school.
