Bullying/Behavioral Threat

Santa Rosa Independent School District does not tolerate bullying, which includes cyberbullying. Though we teach all of our students that bullying is wrong, it still occasionally occurs. And, while we would like cases of bullying to be reported to the administration, they are not always reported.

Report Bullying Online

Use the SRISD Bullying Report form to report bullying online and anonymously. We recognize that creating a safe learning environment is a critical part of helping each child achieve academic success. Incidences of bullying may be reported using the form below.

  • The behavior is being done intentionally
