SEX OFFENDER REGISTRATION ACT (SORA): Individuals convicted of sexual offenses may reside within our school district. Registered sex offenders in New York State are classified by the risk of re-offense. A court determines whether an offender is a level 1 (low risk), 2 (moderate risk), or 3 (high risk). There are three ways to obtain information about sex offenders in New York State:

  1. You can call 1-800-262-3257 to determine if someone is on the Registry.
