Watertown School Board is presented with first reading of student-registered sex offender | Local News | #childpredator | #kidsaftey | #childsaftey

Superintendent Dr. Jeff Danielsen presented a first reading of a policy update for student-registered sex offenders.

Dr. Danielsen explains more….

The language states that if a student is 18 or 17 years old and younger, the parents or guardian must educate the Superintendent or Building Principal about the student being a registered sex offender.

The Superintendent or designee meets with parents/guardians, the student, and the School Resource Officer to determine the background. If the student is 18, it’s up to them to invite the parents or guardians.

It’s also stated that a student won’t be denied the opportunity:

“Students who are registered sex offenders shall not be denied the opportunity to receive a free education from the school district solely based on being a registered sex offender. The school district may consider a student’s status as a registered sex offender in determining the student’s educational placement and program.”

Limitations could include distance or remote learning, no attendance at a building with daycare or younger students, a “behavior contract,” or periodic visitations with the School Resource Officer and/or School Counselor.

The School Board will review it again at the next meeting and vote.
