In accordance with New York State’s Sex Offender Registration Act, local law enforcement agencies notify school administrators of sex offenders living or working in our school district. Such information may include the offender’s address or zip code, photograph, crime conviction, modus of operation, type of victim targeted, and the description of any special conditions imposed on the offender.
All information the district receives from local law enforcement will be posted in an appropriate location in all district buildings, the district website, and will be available to all school employees. In addition, any information received will be circulated to all staff who might come into contact with the offender in the course of doing their jobs, including building principals, assistant principals, staff who issue visitor’s passes, bus drivers, custodians, playground monitors, and coaches. All staff have been directed to notify their supervisor if they observe any suspicious person in an area where children congregate, and law enforcement officials will be notified in cases where the circumstances warrant it.

All of our schools have strict sign-in/sign-out procedures for our students, and all visitors must first report to the school’s main office for a visitor’s pass.
