Stay Alert School Safety Program
Dear Parents & Students,
 
According to the 2017 Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System, some startling facts regarding student safety were analyzed in the 12 months preceding the survey from Texas students in grades 9-12. As a reminder, River Road ISD participates in the StayALERT School Safety Program. This program offers students and parents alike a place to voice their concerns anonymously if they so choose.
 
According to the 2017 Texas High School Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System Data:
 
8% of Texas students did not go to school because they felt unsafe at school or on their way to or from school. 18.8% of Texas students reported being bullied on school property, while 14.7% reported being bullied electronically. 20.9% of Texas students were in a physical fight. 34.2% of students in Texas felt sad or hopeless and 26.7% were offered, sold or given an illegal drug on school property.
 
We hope that this data sheds a light on the importance of being vigilant in reporting safety concerns.
