Iowa City board to discuss student sex offender

The Iowa City Community School Board is scheduled next week to discuss where to place a student who's required to register as a sex offender.

Superintendent Stephen Murley says Iowa law requires the district to offer education to all school-age children in the district, including sex offenders who must register.

The board will discuss the issue in a closed session before Tuesday's regular meeting.

Murley says federal privacy statutes bar district officials from releasing most information about the situation, including the student's name, offense and which school building the student will be placed.

Karin Hamilton with the Iowa Sex Offender Registry says a sex offender who has committed an offense against a child is not allowed on school grounds unless enrolled in that school.
