Annalyn’s Law is named after a child victim who was abused by a juvenile in Alabama.
Juvenile sex offenders must submit an application to all school property and school functions, according to a draft of the model policy. They must also meet with school personnel to create and implement an individualized safety plan.
Also, schools will continue to share information and monitor the students through school enrollment changes and school personnel changes. Officials will offer training to school personnel on how to take appropriate action when an increase or escalation of certain behaviors is noticed.
Members of the advisory committee developing the policy include the state’s Law Enforcement Agency, the Alabama Department of Education, the Department of Human Resources, the Governor’s Office, the Alabama Coalition Against Rape, the Attorney General’s Office and the Southern Poverty Law Center.
