Sex Offenders - School Notification

SCHOOL NOTIFICATION

The local law enforcement authority shall verify the age of the victim. If the victim is a child younger than 17 years of age, the local authority shall immediately provide by mail, notice of the offender to the superintendent of the public school district and to the administrator of any private primary or secondary school located in the public school district in which the offender subject to registration intends to reside.

Also, if a person subject to registration is 17 years of age or older and is a student enrolled in a public or private secondary school, the local law enforcement authority shall provide notice of the offender to the superintendent of the public school district and the administrator of any private primary or secondary school.

On receipt of a notice, the superintendent shall release the information contained in the notice to appropriate school district personnel, including peace officers and security personnel, principals, nurses, and counselors.

Law enforcement shall include in the notice any information the authority determines is necessary to protect the public, except the offender's:

  1. Social Security Number

  2. Driver's License Number

  3. Telephone Number

  4. Any information that would identify the victim of the offense.

Schools are notified of juveniles who have petitioned the court and been granted nonpublic status on their registration. However, it must be made clear to the superintendent that this is not public information.

School notification is not done on out-of-state, military, and federal offenders unless their supervision has transferred to a Texas supervising authority.
