TRUSSVILLE — The Trussville City Board of Education on Monday approved a policy for sex offenders.
The policy states that adult sex offenders who have been convicted of a sex offense involving a minor must:
- Notify the principal of the school or his designee before entering school property or attending the K-12 school activity
- Immediately report to the principal of the school or his designee upon entering the property or arriving at the K-12 school activity
- Cooperate with any efforts undertaken by the principal of the school or his designee to discreetly monitor their presence on school property or at the K-12 school activity
The approved policy states that adult sex offenders “have a duty to comply with this policy, and it shall not be construed as imposing an affirmative duty of any kind on the school principal, his designee, or any other employee, agent, or representative of the school or school system.”
The Jefferson County Board of Education is considering adding a similar policy. The proposed policy states that a school activity is any “activity sponsored by a school in which students in grades K-12 are the primary intended audience.”
