In accordance with Correction Law Sections 168-D(3) and 168-I, each offender is assigned a Risk level. After registration, a local law enforcement agency is notified by the Department of Criminal Justice System whenever a sex offender moves into its community. In accordance with Sex Offender Registration Act, the local law enforcement agency may engage in a proactive community notification at its discretion regarding offenders with a level 2 or 3 risk; no proactive notification is permitted if the offender has a level I risk. If the offender is a level 2 or 3 risk, that agency may provide certain information to any "entity with a vulnerable population", which includes school districts.
The Churchville-Chili Central School District takes the following procedures regarding level III, II and I sex offenders.
- Level III Offender: The District will send home written notification when a police agency notifies the District that a level III offender has moved into the area.
- Level II Offender: The District notifies all school buildings about level II offenders and may send home written notification when a police agency notifies the District that a level II offender has moved into the area.
- Level I Offender: The District is not permitted to notify the community of level I offenders who have moved into the area.
To find out if there are any registered sex offenders in our school district community, please refer to this Official New York State Public Registry. You can sign up through the registry website to be notified by email or text when a sex offender moves into your area.
If you have questions or concerns, please notify the Director of Security at 293-1800 extension 2030.
