LEAGUE CITY — The possibility that a student on probation for committing a sexual offense will attend classes in the Clear Creek Independent School District has some parents worried and wondering what they can do to change state and federal laws.

A parent at Monday’s school board meeting spoke about the case of a 13-year-old boy who sexually assaulted a 4-year-old boy at Clear Lake City Elementary, 1707 Fairwind Drive in Houston, two years ago. Later, a small group of parents met with the grandmother of the young boy as she told them of her fight to get more information sent to parents about sex offenders in the schools and to have the teenage special education student removed from the school.

But school district officials said their hands are tied. Federal and state laws prohibit them from saying much, if anything, about these types of cases and from placing a special needs student in alternative education for long periods of time.
