CANDIA SCHOOL DISTRICT
RECEIPT AND USE OF SEX OFFENDER REGISTRY INFORMATION
It is the policy of the Candia School Board to obtain notification of registered sex offenders residing near school grounds or buildings, and to use such information as defined below to maximize student protection.
The board recognizes that, under RSA 651-B:7, it is the responsibility of local law enforcement to notify the community of potential public danger. Therefore, the school district will not disseminate sex offender registry information to parents.
Building Administrators will monitor the official government website and direct all staff to view the website if changes have occurred.
Anyone requesting registry information from the school district will be referred to local law enforcement authorities or the State of New Hampshire Registered Sex Offender Registry website: http://www.egov.nh.gov/nsor.
By the end of September of each year a letter will be distributed to all parents to advise them of the sexual registry policy and its provisions.
Sexual Registry website information will be provided to all employees of the school district. School employees are not authorized to share website information with unauthorized employees.
Registry information will be used for the administration of law-enforcement, screening current or prospective school district employees or volunteers, and for the protection of the district’s students and employees.
