The Los Alamos School Board is seriously considering modifying its school visitation policy, either through language changes to its policies, specialized computer software or both.
Whatever it chooses, the aim would be the same: to come up with a better way of identifying and tracking potentially dangerous people coming onto Los Alamos’ school campuses. Those on the list include those with criminal pasts, mental health issues as well as those with court-mandated child visitation or restraining orders. The board seemed especially interested in registered sex offenders.
At the board’s special work session, Superintendent of Schools Gene Schmidt asked the board to at least consider shoring up present language in the policies that deal with campus visits.
“At the very least, we can’t be happy with what we have. We really need to do something that’s more visible, has stronger language,” he said to the board.
During the public session of the meeting, a resident revealed to the board that she’d already been working with Board Secretary Matt Williams and Piñon Elementary School Principal Jill Gonzales about strengthening the school district’s visitation policy, also known as “policy 1240.”
