Student Safety Resources
The Kaufman Independent School District is dedicated to providing a safe and positive school climate and believes that all students have the right to learn in an environment free of harassment, bullying and violence.
The district continues to work with staff and community partners to prevent harassment and to foster supportive settings for all students, families and staff members.
We encourage you to explore the district's website, which provides important information about KISD policies that address bullying, harassment and violence, as well as resources for parents, students and educators.
Kaufman ISD has partnered with BASE Education, a Social-Emotional Learning company, providing web-based prevention and intervention programs to schools. They offer a series of over 100 online modules, designed by mental health professionals, to support students grades 3-5 and 6-12, as well as teachers and staff. Through the BASE portal, students engage in instructional and therapeutic learning to help them understand their behaviors, process their emotions, address barriers, and build on their strengths, develop coping skills, and future goals.
BASE modules are used for prevention and intervention support of the following topics: Depression, Anxiety, Stress, Anger Management, Truancy, Engagement, Substance Use and Abuse, LGBTQ, Suicide Prevention, Harm Reduction, Retention, Dropout Recovery and Reduction, Human Trafficking and Exploitative Relationships, Restorative Justice, Digital Literacy and Safety, Bullying and Cyberbullying, and many more.
The elementary campuses, grades K-5, will have guidance lessons in child abuse prevention and family violence prevention. Secondary campuses, grades 6-12, will receive instruction for family violence prevention and dating violence prevention. Only grades 9-12 will receive instruction for sex trafficking prevention. Students will only receive instruction with parent consent.
