It's Not Okay

It's Not Okay

  • Bullying, substance abuse, cheating and more - these behaviors are not okay!  Fort Worth ISD is committed to helping our students stay safe.  The "Disrespect? It's not okay!" initiative encourages students to make healthy decisions and ask for help when they or their friends are in need.  Students nicknamed the initiative INOK (pronounced I Knock).

    This effort focuses on behaviors that can place a student and others at risk. These behaviors include: bullying, cyberbullying, teen dating violence, sexting, suicide, gang activity, sexual harassment, racism, human trafficking and substance abuse.
