Sex Offenders Registry

The “Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act” is a federal law enacted on October 28, 2000 that provides for the tracking of convicted sex offenders enrolled as students at institutions of higher education, or working or volunteering on campus.

This act amends the Family Education Rights and privacy Act of 1974 to clarify that nothing in that Act may be construed to prohibit an educational institution from disclosing information provided to the institution concerning registered sex offenders and requires the Secretary of Education to take appropriate steps to notify educational institutions that disclosure of this information is permitted.  Information about registered sex offenders may be found on the Texas Department of Public Safety web page at:
