Sex Offenders on Campus

Pursuant to Articles 62.03, 62.04, 62.05, 62.054, and 62.055 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, amended by the 75th Session of the Texas Legislature, effective September 1, 1997 if a person is named as a person or persons convicted of or adjudicated for an offense of a sexual nature against a child under 17 years of age, the conviction or adjudication of the named person or persons shall be released to public and private school districts where the convicted or adjudicated person or persons reside.

 

Any person convicted of or adjudicated for a sexual offense against a person of ANY age, or required to register as a sexual offender, currently residing in or around Frenship Independent School District (FISD) or having a student enrolled in FISD, an identified public school district, is prohibited from entering any properties or facilities owned or operated by FISD. This is a total barring from FISD properties and/or school sponsored activities with the sole exception of:

 

  • Upon lawful enrollment of a student at FISD, the lawfully named parent or guardian shall present a valid State Driver’s License or Identification Card, pursuant to Article 62.060 Code of Criminal Procedure (Requirements Related to Driver's License or Personal Identification Certificate). In addition the following requirements apply:
    • Upon every visit to the student’s campus, the convicted, adjudicated, or registered shall immediately make their presence know at the main office of the student’s campus by presenting a valid State Driver’s License or Identification Card for review and documentation.  No other form of identification shall be accepted.
    • The person or persons shall not leave the immediate area of the main office.
    • The person shall only have contact with the related student enrolled at the designated campus and at a designated location.

 

If a convicted, adjudicated, or registered person does not have a student enrolled at FISD or is not a lawful or designated parent or guardian of a currently enrolled student, that person is prohibited from entering any FISD properties or activities sponsored or under the control of FISD.

 

Section 30.05 of the Texas Penal Code (Criminal Trespass) states in part – A person commits an offense if he enters or remains on property or in a building of another without effective consent and had notice that entry was forbidden or received notice to depart but failed to do so.  Notice means oral or written communication by the owner or someone with apparent authority to act for the owner.  A violation of Section 30.05 of the Texas Penal Code is a Class B misdemeanor, punishable by a fine or confinement in jail, or both.

 

Violators are further advised that should they be found in violation of this order, they will be arrested and taken to the Lubbock County Jail and prosecuted under Section 30.05 of the Texas Penal Code.

 

This order will remain in effect indefinitely. Should a convicted or adjudicated person believe a compelling reason exists that would justify a modification or termination of this order, that person shall submit such request in writing to the Chief of Police of the FISD Police Department. Attach any pertinent documentation (court orders, etc...).  No other form of communication will be considered. This warning applies to legal guardians or parents.

 

No person other than an enrolled student has a constitutional right to have access to schools or school activities.
