Bullying: What can you do? David’s Law was enacted by the Texas Legislature in 2017 to combat and prevent bullying in schools. The law amends Texas Education Code, Chapter 37, so now β€œa single significant act” may constitute bullying rather than a pattern of acts. Bullying is defined in this code section as a single act or pattern of acts by one or more students directed at another student that exploits an imbalance of power and involves engaging in written or verbal expression or expression through electronic means which includes cyberbullying. This code chapter requires each independent school district in Texas to have a local policy that prohibits bullying, harassment, and ensures that district employees enforce those prohibitions. Further, under the requirements of Chapter 37, school districts must have developed specific options under the local policy that are appropriate for each grade level and that provide for prevent- ing and intervening in student discipline problems such as bully- ing and harassment. The disciplinary provisions for bullying and cyberbullying apply to (1) bullying that occurs on or while being delivered to or from school property or a site of a school sponsored event; (2) bullying that occurs on a vehicle being used for transpor- tation of students to or from school or a school sponsored event; and cyberbullying that occurs off school property if such interferes with a student’s •‘Ս…Ρ₯½Ή…°½ΑΑ½ΙΡΥΉ₯Ρ₯•ΜΈQ‘”ΑΙ₯Ή₯Α…°½˜„)ΑΥ‰±₯ŒΝ‘½½°°½ΘΡ‘”ΑΙ₯Ή₯Α…³Šé‘•Ν₯Ή•”°΅…䁡…­”„Ι•Α½ΙЁѼ)±…܁•Ή™½Ι•΅•ΉΠ₯˜°…™Ρ•Θ…Έ₯ΉΩ•ΝΡ₯…Ρ₯½Έ₯́½΅Α±•Ρ•°Ι•…Ν½Έ΄)…‰±”Ι½ΥΉ‘́•α₯ΝЁѼ‰•±₯•Ω”Ρ‘”ΝΡΥ‘•ΉΠ•Ή…•₯ΈΡ‘”‰Υ±±ε₯Ήœ)½΅΅₯ΡΡ•…Έ…ΝͅձЁչ‘•ΘA•Ή…° ½‘”°M•Ρ₯½Έ€ΘΘΈΐΔ°½Θ‘…Ι…ΝΜ΄)΅•ΉΠΥΉ‘•ΘA•Ή…° ½‘”°M•Ρ₯½Έ€ΠάΈΐάΈM₯Ή”‰Υ±±ε₯Ήœ…Έ…ΥΝ”)Ι•Ρ…±₯…Ρ₯½Έ°Ρ‘”‰½…ɐΑ½±₯δ΅ΥΝЁ…±ΝΌ₯Ή±Υ‘”ΑΙ½•‘Υɕ́½Ή•ΙΈ΄)₯ΉœΙ•Ρ…±₯…Ρ₯½Έ°…ΉΡ‘”Α½±₯δ΅ΥΝЁΑΙ½‘₯‰₯Ё‘₯͍₯Α±₯Ή…Ι䁡•…ΝΥΙ•Μ)……₯ΉΝЁ„ΝΡΥ‘•ΉΠέ‘Ό°…™Ρ•Θ…Έ₯ΉΩ•ΝΡ₯…Ρ₯½Έ°₯́™½ΥΉΡΌ‰”Ρ‘”)Ω₯Ρ₯΄½˜‰Υ±±ε₯Ήœ°½ΈΡ‘”‰…Ν₯́½˜Ρ‘…ЁΝΡΥ‘•ΉΣŠéΥΝ”½˜Ι•…Ν½Ή…‰±”)Ν•±˜΅‘•™•ΉΝ”₯ΈΙ•ΝΑ½ΉΝ”ΡΌ‰Υ±±ε₯ΉœΈ)9Ό‘₯±₯́₯΅΅ΥΉ”™Ι½΄‰Υ±±ε₯Ήœ°‰ΥЁ‘₯±‘Ι•Έέ₯Ρ ‘₯Ν…‰₯±€΄)Ρ₯•ΜΝՍ …́Α‘εΝ₯…°°‘•Ω•±½Α΅•ΉΡ…°°•΅½Ρ₯½Ή…°°₯ΉΡ•±±•ΡΥ…°…Ή)Ν•ΉΝ½Ι䁑₯Ν…‰₯±₯Ρ₯•Μ…Ι”…Ё…Έ₯ΉΙ•…Ν•Ι₯Ν¬½˜‰•₯Ήœ‰Υ±±₯•°Ρ‘•Ι”΄)™½Ι”°Ρ‘”Ν‘½½°Α½±₯δ΅ΥΝЁΑΙ½Ω₯‘”Ρ‘…Ё„ΝΡΥ‘•ΉΠέ‘Ό₯́•ΉΙ½±±•)₯Έ„ΝΑ•₯…°•‘Ս…Ρ₯½ΈΑΙ½Ι…΄°΅…䁹½Π‰”‘₯͍₯Α±₯Ή•™½Θ½Ή‘ՍΠ)ΑΙ½‘₯‰₯Ρ•₯Έ ‘…ΑΡ•Θ€Μ܁½ΘΡ‘”Ν‘½½°Α½±₯δΥΉΡ₯°…Έ…‘΅₯ΝΝ₯½Έ°)Ι•Ω₯•ά°…Ή‘₯Ν΅₯ΝΝ…°½΅΅₯ΡΡ•”΅••Ρ₯Ήœ‘…́‰••Έ‘•±ΡΌΙ•Ω₯•ά)Ρ‘”½Ή‘ՍиΥΙΡ‘•Ι΅½Ι”°‘₯ΝΡΙ₯ΠΑ½±₯δ΅ΥΝЁɕΕΥ₯Ι”Ρ‘…Ё‘₯͍€΄)Α±₯Ή”™½Θ‰Υ±±ε₯Ήœ½˜„ΝΡΥ‘•ΉΠέ₯Ρ ‘₯Ν…‰₯±₯Ρ₯•Μ½΅Α±δέ₯Ρ …ΑΑ±€΄)…‰±”Ι•ΕΥ₯Ι•΅•ΉΡ́չ‘•Θ™•‘•Ι…°±…ά°₯Ή±Υ‘₯Ήœ%Ή‘₯Ω₯‘Υ…±Μέ₯Ρ )₯Ν…‰₯±₯Ρ₯•Μ‘Ս…Ρ₯½ΈΠ€ ΘΐUM °M•Ρ₯½Έ€ΔΠΐΐ•ΠΈΝ•ΔΈ€)́ε½Τ…ΈΝ•”Ρ‘•Ι”…Ι”΅…Ήδ₯ΝΝՕ́₯ΉΩ½±Ω•έ₯Ρ ‰Υ±±ε₯Ήœ(‘€Ή”Έ°Ρ‘”…ΡΥ…°‰Υ±±ε₯Ήœ°Ρ‘”Ω₯Ρ₯΄°Ι•Ρ…±₯…Ρ₯½Έ°Ν•±˜΅‘•™•ΉΝ”°•ΡŒΈ€°)‰ΥЁё•Ι”…Ι”±…έ́…ΉΑ½±₯₯•Μ₯ΈΑ±…”ΡΌ…ΝΝ₯ΝЁε½Τ…Ήε½ΥΘ)‘₯±Ρ‘ɽ՝ Ρ‘”ΑΙ½•ΝΜΈ%Ё₯́₯΅Α½ΙΡ…ΉΠ•… ΝΡΥ‘•ΉΠΡΌΙ•Α½ΙΠ)…Ήδ‰Υ±±ε₯Ήœ½ΘΡ‘Ι•…Ρ́ѼΡ‘”Ή•…Ι•ΝЁѕ…‘•Θ½Θ…‘ձЁ…Ё͍‘½½°…Μ)Ν½½Έ…́Α½ΝΝ₯‰±”°ΝΌΡΌ…±±½άΡ‘”Ν‘½½°ΡΌΡ…­”…ΑΑΙ½ΑΙ₯…Ρ”…Ρ₯½ΈΈ)%˜ε½Τ°…́„Α…Ι•ΉΠ‘…Ω”½Ή•ΙΉΜ…‰½ΥЁ‰Υ±±ε₯Ήœ°΅••Πέ₯Ρ Ρ‘”)…΅ΑΎΑΙ₯Ή₯Α…°ΡΌ•αΑΙ•Ν́…Ή‘½Υ΅•ΉΠε½Υȁ½Ή•ΙΉΜΈ%˜ε½ΥΘ)‘₯±₯́ɕ•₯Ω₯ΉœΝΑ•₯…°•‘Ս…Ρ₯½ΈΝ•ΙΩ₯•Μ°Ι•ΕΥ•ΝЁ…ΉΌΡΌ)…ΈI½΅΅₯ΡΡ•”΅••Ρ₯ΉœΡΌ™½Ύ½ΈΡ‘”ΑΙ½‰±•΄…Ή…ΙΙ…Ή”)„Α±…ΈΡΌ₯ΉΡ•ΙΩ•Ή”…Ёё”…΅ΑΎ±•Ω•°ΈI•Α½ΙΡ₯ΉœΑΙ½•‘ΥΙ•Μ)έ₯Ρ‘₯ΈΡ‘”Ν‘½½³ŠéΑ½±₯δ΅ΥΝЁ₯Ή±Υ‘”…Ή½Ήε΅½ΎɕΑ½ΙΡ₯ΉœΡΌ)‘•±ΐέ₯Ρ Ι•Ρ…±₯…Ρ₯½Έ₯ΝΝΥ•Μ°ΝΌε½Τ‘…Ω”ΉΌΙ•…Ν½ΈΉ½ΠΡΌΙ•Α½ΙΠ)…ΉΙ•½Ιε½Υȁ₯ΝΝΥ•ΜΈ)…Ω₯“Šé1…܁݅́Α…ΝΝ•₯Έ‘½Ή½Θ½˜…Ω₯5½±…¬°„€Δ؁啅Θ)½±ΝΡΥ‘•ΉΠ™Ι½΄M…ΈΉΡ½Ή₯Ό°έ‘ΌΡ½½¬‘₯́±₯™”…™Ρ•Θ‰•₯ΉœΝΥ‰©•Π΄)•ΡΌ•αΡ•ΉΝ₯Ω”½Ή±₯Ή”‘…Ι…ΝΝ΅•ΉΠ…Ή‰Υ±±ε₯ΉœΈ)Q₯΄5•Ή‘½±₯„°€°A…ΙΡΉ•Θ°4™@1…܁=™™₯”°€ΨδΐΐΈ%ΉΡ•ΙΝΡ…Ρ”€Θΐ°±•‘Ό°Q•α…Μ(άΨΐΐΰ°€ΰΔάΈΤΠΨΈΠΔΐΐ°„•Ή•Ι…°ΑΙ…Ρ₯”°₯Ή±Υ‘₯Ήœ°Ι₯΅₯Ή…°°™…΅₯±δ°©ΥΩ•Ή₯±”°₯Ω₯°°)Ι•…°•ΝΡ…Ρ”°‰ΥΝ₯Ή•Ν́±…܁Ν₯Ή”€ΔδδΠ°…ΉΝ₯Ή”€Θΐΐ́₯ΈA…Ι­•Θ ½ΥΉΡ䰁Q•α…ΜΈ)Q₯΄₯́„΅•΅‰•Θ½˜Ρ‘”Q•α…́ …ȁ½ΥΉ‘…Ρ₯½Έ…Ή€ΘΐΔ܁΅•Ι₯…Έ%ΉΝΡ₯ΡΥΡ”½˜) Ι₯΅₯Ή…°1…܁ΡΡ½ΙΉ•εΜ€Δΐ •ΝЁΡΡ½ΙΉ•εΜΈ(ΨδΐΐΈ%ΉΡ•ΙΝΡ…Ρ”€ΘΐΙ½ΉΡ…”IΈM½ΥΡ  ±•‘Ό€°Q•α…́ €ΰΔάΈΤΠΨΈΠΔΐΐ €ΰΔάΈΤΠΨΈΠΔΐЁ™…ΰ)i…‘…ΙδDΈA•ΡΡ₯Ι•ά°Q₯΅½Ρ‘δ0ΈI₯‘…Ι‘Ν½Έ°-₯΅‰•Ι±δPΈ5•Ή‘½±₯„°Q₯΅½Ρ‘δ(Έ5•Ή‘½±₯„(άδ
