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