Bullying Information

 

First and foremost, it is of utmost importance if you have information related to bullying behaviors, that you report them directly to a school staff member for remediation.  However, the district also offers StayALERT as a secondary option to reporting via a phone call or personal conference.  We always encourage you to primarily contact the school staff if you have a concern at 940-659-2745.

 

What is StayALERT?

StayALERT is our school district's bilingual, confidential, safety reporting service. StayALERT provides students, parents of students, school and district administrators, teachers, and staff a means to confidentially report school-related safety concerns.  The StayALERT reporting tool is available 24-7-365.  

 

Who may create a report and how are they submitted to stayALERT?

Any student, teacher, faculty, parent of a student, or local community member may submit a report.  StayALERT has four modes of reporting a concern:

How are reported concerns handled or processed?

 

Reports received by stayALERT are quickly screened and then communicated verbatim back to a pre-designated district administrator, who reviews the report and follows the district's procedures for handling the concern.  StayALERT is a reporting tool and does not provide counseling services or other guidance.  As a reporting tool, StayALERT gathers information from reports to facilitate follow-up decisions by the appropriated party.  All reports to StayALERT are handled in a confidential manner.
