Procedures for Reporting Allegations of Bullying
The district prohibits bullying on school property, at school-sponsored or school-related activities, or in any vehicle operated by the district. Bullying may be verbal or written expression or expression through electronic means, or physical conduct. Bullying is not tolerated by the district and any student or parent of a student who believes that the student or another student has experienced bullying or that a student has engaged in bullying is encouraged to immediately report the incident. Retaliation against anyone involved in the complaint process is a violation of district policy and is prohibited.
Students or parents may report an alleged incident of bullying, orally or in writing, to a teacher, counselor, principal or other district employee. Students or parents may contact the district to obtain an incident report form that may be used to submit the complaint.
Please note that after submission of the complaint to the district employee, the district may assign the complaint to a campus administrator to follow up on the submitted complaint and any other important matters pertaining to the complaint. We encourage you to communicate with your designated campus administrator during this time.
More information about the district’s bullying policy can be found in your campus administration office.

To Texas School Districts:
the 86th Legislature, HB 3884 required
the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) to create procedures for
school districts to provide information relating to bacterial meningitis to
students and parents. This requirement was previously assigned to the Texas
Education Agency (TEA). DSHS has created a website with bacterial meningitis
information aimed at students and parents.
districts should provide the information from the DSHS website on the
district website. Alternatively districts
may provide a link to the DSHS page on the district website. For school
districts that do not maintain a website, the information should be provided
in hard copy to each student. A printable version of the information is
available on the website.
