Bullying is a continuing challenge in Texas schools, and SSISD is committed to preventing it.  The health and safety of our children is our highest priority.  No child deserves to be the victim of bullying.  

Bullying is defined in Section 37.0832 of the Education Code as a single significant act or a pattern of acts by one or more students directed at another student that exploits an imbalance of power and involves engaging in written or verbal expression, expression through electronic means, or physical conduct that:

  • Has the effect or will have the effect of physically harming a student, damaging a student’s property, or placing a student in reasonable fear of harm to the student’s person or of damage to the student’s property;
  • Is sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive enough that the action or threat creates an intimidating, threatening, or abusive educational environment for a student;
  • Materially and substantially disrupts the educational process or the orderly operation of a classroom or school; or
  • Infringes on the rights of the victim at school.

 

S.B. 179, known as David’s Law, has augmented the definition of bullying in schools and included the requirement to include a procedure for students to anonymously report incidents of bullying.  SSISD has partnered with 806 Technologies to meet this need.  Now, any member of our community may report incidents of bullying at the link found here. 

If you have any questions about bullying or the bully reporter system, please contact your child’s principal.
