SCHOOL THREAT MESSAGES CAN BRING SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES
In the wake of the tragic school violence in Florida last month, many school districts are being burdened with copycat messages threatening harm against school personnel or school facilities. The Fort Worth ISD is no exception.The District has received numerous messages since mid-February that not only disrupt valuable class time but consume law enforcement resources in an effort to determine legitimacy. Meanwhile those police resources could be used to assist those actually in need of help.Superintendent Kent P. Scribner has authored a letter that is being sent to all District homes as we dismiss for Spring Break. In the letter the problem is explained to parents. It helps them understand the consequences that result from such actions and provides some guidance on how parents can partner with the District and police to help eliminate false threats.A copy of the letter is attached here.
