There is no provision in the law for making an exception via written  consent for “b” or “c.” A vendor or contractor of the school is  absolutely prohibited from having a registrant on school property.  There is no exception for contractors doing work only when students  are not present (such as summertime). There is no exception for  contractors doing work on a building not populated by students (such  as the bus barn or a new attendance center). 4.  Exceptions.  A registrant  may  do the following: a. Be on school property for the purpose of voting for the time  reasonably necessary to vote; b. Transport a child or ward of the registrant to and from school for  the time reasonably necessary for this task.

5.  Additional restrictions . A school board is prohibited from passing a  resolution or policy that would impose any additional restrictions. So,  even though registrants convicted of a sexual offense against a minor  are prohibited from being on school grounds, (see #3 above), a board  could not adopt a policy prohibiting all registrants from being on  school grounds. 6.  Resources.  The information on the Sex Offender Registry Web site  is a public record so it can be discussed and disseminated as  needed. a. The link to the SOR is:  . This is  the Web site available to the public. This link may be placed on a  school or school district’s Web site. b. Questions should be referred to local law enforcement or the Iowa  Division of Criminal Investigation at 515-725-6050 or  dps- [email protected] . c.  The full bill . Criteria for Granting or Denying Consent Criteria : Principals have full discretion to determine whether to grant  permission for a registrant to be on school grounds. Principals should  use their common sense, knowledge of their community, and  information from law enforcement, regarding the underlying offense,  to make these decisions. Some issues to consider: The victim—is he or she a student and likely to be at the event? Relatives of the victim—are relatives of the victim likely to be at the  event? The crime itself—how recent is it?

Is the event a special occasion such as a graduation, honors  banquet, etc.? Does local law enforcement have an opinion on whether the principal  should grant approval? District's ability to control the environment in which the registrant will  be present (e.g., will the district have enough staff present to  supervise the registrant?). What staff members need to know about the registrant's presence on  school grounds and their duties while the registrant is on school  grounds.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
