School Districts Required to Notify Parents of Nearby Sex Offender

On June 16, 2008, Governor Mark Sanford signed into law H.3094, a bill that requires school districts to make sure that parents receive information concerning registered sex offenders who reside near school bus stops.  Specifically, under this new legislation, which will be codified as S.C. Code Ann. 23-3-535, at the beginning of each school year, each school district must provide the hyperlink to the sex offender registry web site on the District’s web site to make the information accessible to parents and guardians.
