Bullying

No student should be subjected to bullying, harassment or threatening behavior that interferes with their ability to learn. No student should be subjected to safety problems that can result from bullying, harassment or threatening behavior

School safety is a priority and CISD takes complaints of such acts very seriously.

  • A bully uses teasing, threats, or strength to pick on, frighten, or hurt someone or take what they want.

    • Bullying is a form of aggressive and harassing behavior. This antisocial behavior occurs across geographic, racial, and socioeconomic segments of society.
    • Bullying prevents its victims from enjoying a safe, stress-free living, learning, and working environment.
    • Children who bully are at risk for juvenile and adult criminal behavior. Early intervention in the home, school and the community are the best hope we have of diverting people from this destructive pattern.
  • Students may be dealing with a bully if they show:
    • Fear of going to school
    • Fear of using the bathroom at school
    • Fear of the bus ride to and from school
    • Physical symptoms of illness
    • Diminished ability to learn
  • Five elements of a threat:

    • Willful intent of seriously injuring or killing a person
    • The threat was made verbally, in writing or through electronic communication
    • Statement is understood as a threat, regardless of if the threat were able to or intended to be carried out
    • Aggressor has present ability to carry out the threat
    • A reasonable fear for safety after the threat was made

To provide a student-centered environment that cultivates character, promotes academic excellence, and embraces diversity. Students will achieve their maximum potential and become productive citizens that provide a lasting contribution to our society.
