Pursuant to Article 6-C of the New York State Correction Law, the Akron Central School District along with other municipalities and school districts are notified by local police agencies when there is a registered sex offender living in our area. Police departments release information on Level Three (high risk), Level Two (moderate risk), and Level One (low risk) sex offenders. The exact address of Level One offenders is not provided, but an area is revealed based on a zip code.
When this happens, you can be assured that the school district takes all the necessary precautions to keep our children safe. In addition to notifying school employees and the general public, we also brief staff members responsible for after school activities. We encourage you to talk with your children about being safe and how to make smart decisions to protect themselves.
