The Everett Community College Board of Trustees adopted Policy Directive Number 2001-05-02 in April 2001 which provides a procedure for notifying the general campus community about students who are enrolled in course work at Everett Community College and who are considered Levels I, II and III (low to high risk of re-offending) Registered Sex Offenders pursuant to RCW 4.24.550. Information, including the registered sex offender's picture for Level III offenders, will be posted at the Everett Community College Security Office, Parks Student Union, Room 224.
In accordance to the “Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act of 2000,” which amends the Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Registration Act (1997) , the Jeanne Clery Act and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, the Everett Community College Campus Health and Safety Department is providing a link to the Washington State Sex Offender Registry for Snohomish County. This act requires institutions of higher education to issue a statement advising the campus community where law enforcement information provided by a State concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained. It also requires sex offenders already required to register in a State to provide notice of each institution of higher education in that State at which the person is employed, carries a vocation, or is a student. In the State of Washington, convicted sex offenders must register in their county of residence with the County Sheriff Department - Registration of Sex and Kidnapping Offenders Registry. The registry in this county is maintained by the Snohomish County Sheriff Department.
The Registration of Sex and Kidnapping Offenders is available via Internet pursuant to Section RCW 4.24.550, of the Revised Code of Washington. Registry information provided under Section RCW 4-24-550, Sex offender and kidnapping offenders – Release of information to public shall be used for the purposes of the administration of criminal justice, screening of current or prospective employees, volunteers or otherwise for the protection of the public in general and children in particular. Unlawful use of the information for purposes of intimidating or harassing another is prohibited and willful violation shall be punishable as a criminal act under the Revised Code of Washington.
Each county sheriff is responsible for maintaining this registry. To view more information, access the Snohomish County Sheriff Department website.
Nothing in the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), 20 U.S.C. Section 1232g, prevents educational institutions from disclosing information concerning registered sex offenders provided under the Wetterling Act, October 25, 2000, including information made available under the Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act (CSCPA) 42 U.S.C. 14071(j), amendment (October 28, 2002) to that Act and information otherwise made available under Washington State sex offender registration and community notification programs.
