Bullying is one of the most widely discussed topics in developing school safety and security. The safety of our EMS students is a top priority. EMS ISD incorporates Lion's Quest character education or Positive Action programming K-12 in order to support our students' social emotional growth, in learning about themeselves, others, and how to value and treat one another. In recent years, cyberbullying has increased among students. Effective September 1, 2017, Texas legislature enacted David's Law to address bullying and cyberbullying of public school students, encourage mental health programs in public schools, and increase the criminal penalty for bullying or cyberbully. EMS ISD educates students on reporting cyberbullying and keeping themselves and others safe online. Learn more about the district's policy on bullying on the Administrative Regulations website under Policy FFI.
