Sex offenders

Rep. Simpson is sponsoring a measure that would require sex offenders to check in each year with local districts in order to maintain a safe atmosphere around schools. Every member of the House State Affairs Committee voted in support of it.

Simpson said the bill stems from an incident in his home district in which two sex offenders attended a school play without informing school officials.

The bill would make it a misdemeanor if sex offenders fail to check in with school officials prior to their first visit of a school year. Even those sex offenders who only drop students off at school must check in.

Officials would have the ability to know sex offenders associated with students in schools, while offenders would be able to be easily informed of district policy changes on security or access issues.[1]
