With the recent passage of Senate Bill 179 or David's Law, West ISD has been working to adopt certain practices and procedures to prevent and respond to bullying and cyberbullying, expand district jurisdiction for off-campus cyberbullying, and establish civil and criminal consequences for certain types of bullying.
Over the summer, West ISD has prepared a plan and response for each of this Senate Bill's provisions. This website highlights several of the updates, as well as all bully incident reporting options. For additional information, please contact David Truitt, Superintendent, at (254) 981-2000.
