BULLYING PREVENTION Elementary CAMPUS INFORMATION - Help is available

NEISD is strongly committed to preventing and addressing bullying in any form. However, no school district can ever completely control the behavior of its students at all times, or guarantee that bullying will not occur. That is why it is very important that parents communicate any concerns to the school so that these concerns can be investigated and any necessary action can be taken.

By clicking on your child’s school, you can see the programs that are in place and to whom you should address your concerns. By working together, we can continue to help your child have a successful school year.
