Round Rock ISD Anti-Bullying Policy and Investigation Procedures
Round Rock ISD expects that all members of the school community will treat each other in a civil manner and with respect for differences. Round Rock ISD is committed to providing a learning and working environment for students, employees, and visitors that is free from bullying and cyberbullying.
This commitment is an integral part of our comprehensive efforts to promote learning and to prevent and eliminate all forms of bullying and other harmful and disruptive behavior that can impede the learning process.
The safety of our students is of the utmost importance to Round Rock ISD. If there is any suspicion of child abuse please report the abuse to the proper authorities by calling the TX Abuse Hotline at 1-800-252-5400 or TX Abuse Hotline

Suicide is when people direct violence at themselves with the intent to end their lives, and they die as a result of their actions. Suicide is a leading cause of death in the United States.
A suicide attempt is when people harm themselves with the intent to end their lives, but they do not die as a result of their actions. Many more people survive suicide attempts than die, but they often have serious injuries. However, a suicide attempt does not always result in a physical injury.
