Kenedy ISD Official Statement 1-12-2020We want to thank our KISD students, staff and parents for reporting the online threats made regarding students and staff. Administration expeditiously reported the information to City of Kenedy Police Department, and they responded immediately to investigate this threat further, late Saturday night. KISD takes this threat very seriously and will take swift disciplinary action, as allowable by KISD Board Policy and the requirements of Chapter 37 of the Texas Education Code. According to our Code of Conduct, making a terroristic threat requires a mandatory Disciplinary Alternative Education Program (DAEP) placement, and depending on the details and facts, it may warrant expulsion to a Juvenile Justice Alternative Education Program (JJAEP). Due to the citizens who passed on this information, and the immediate response from our local law enforcement, there is no longer a threat to students or staff from this individual. We expect all students and staff to be in attendance on Monday, as school will resume as usual. Aside from the daily presence of our campus and district administration and our School Resource Officer (SRO) Amanda Fanning, we will have an additional police presence in the morning and throughout the day as necessary. There will be an assembly for all students in grades 6-12 on Monday to ensure students of their safety and to review our Code of Conduct. Mrs. Gibson, Mr. Warzecha, and our SRO- Officer Fanning will be available for questions regarding making a terroristic threat. Please be sure your child is in attendance on Monday so he/she can attend this important assembly and resume to business as usual at Kenedy Middle School and Kenedy High School.
