Inform Yourself About Bullying

We teach students to first identify the differences between conflict and bullying. If it is conflict, we focus on conflict resolution, as this is a life-long skill that students will need. Conflict is a natural part of interaction, and the better a student/person is equipt to handle it, the better their chances of creating successful social interactions with others. If it is bullying, we focus on knwoing where and who to go for help and how to handle it. Please report all cases of bullying.



If you need to report bullying, please complete the Denton ISD Bully Report Form and submit it to the counselor, the assistant principal, or the principal.
