Sex Offender Notification (AP-066)

ROGUE COMMUNITY COLLEGE
ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURE

 

Procedure: SEX OFFENDER NOTIFICATION (AP-066)
Contact:
Compliance Coordinator, Ext. 7632

Background: The “Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act” (section 1601 of Public Law 106-386) is a federal law enacted on October 28, 2000 that provides for the tracking of convicted, registered sex offenders enrolled as students at institutions of higher education, or who are working or volunteering on campus. It also amended the Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act to require institutions of higher education to issue a statement, in addition to other disclosures required under that Act, advising the campus community where law enforcement agency information provided by a State concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained. These changes took effect October 28, 2002 and this notice is a requirement beginning with the annual Campus Public Safety Security report due October 1, 2003. Lastly, the Act amends the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) (October 28, 2000) to clarify that nothing in that Act may be construed to prohibit an educational institution from disclosing information provided to the institution concerning registered sex offenders; and requires the Secretary of Education to take appropriate steps to notify educational institutions that disclosure of this information is permitted.

Rogue Community College (RCC or the College) Sex Offender Notification Procedures: Information regarding registered sex offenders may be obtained from the Oregon State Police, Sex Offender Unit (503-378-3720). It is the intention of the College to be proactive in its efforts to be better informed about sex offenders attending classes at RCC. Any information obtained must be communicated with the College’s Compliance Coordinator, ckieley@roguecc.edu; 541-245-7632.

RCC Compliance Coordinator: The Compliance Coordinator will serve as primary contact for:

  • Sex offenders and/or students who self-identify.
  • Parole officers seeking to provide identification information to RCC.
  • RCC personnel to whom students self-identify.
  • RCC personnel who may discover students identified in a public report.
     

The RCC Compliance Coordinator will contact the local Probation Department to determine conditions of probation and the enrollment eligibility of the sex offender will be determined at this time. If conditions of probation are currently being met and can be upheld on campus, the sex offender will meet with the College’s Compliance Coordinator to complete enrollment procedures. The Compliance Coordinator will notify the designated campus community at the start of each academic term as to the location of information related to sex offenders in the state of Oregon.
