Kenedy ISD Official StatementRecently, there was a discipline incident at our Kenedy Middle School campus. Appropriate disciplinary action was taken regarding that incident. It is our understanding that issues such as this are ongoing at that campus. Any acts that compromise the safety of students or staff are absolutely unacceptable!

Our Superintendent, Mrs. Barrera, has personally spoken with the mother of the student in this particular incident and will meet with her and her daughter upon returning to school in January. In fact, one of the goals our board has set for this year is regarding school climate and student safety. As such, we know we certainly have work to do in this area, and our plans will be forthcoming when they are available.

Since the Superintendent's tenure at KISD, we have made it our mission to change the perception of our schools, district, and community. We believe we have come a long way thus far! We have shared all the great things our students and staff are doing to make our KISD the VERY BEST in the county, region, and state and we have been receiving positive support from our surrounding districts and other districts in the state.

We acknowledge that KISD is not perfect, we certainly know that. However, we are committed to find solutions to issues that will help us build our district up, rather than tear it down.

We also understand that there have been negative social media posts that have been shared that are inciting more negativity, and focusing on the problem, and not the solution.

We respectfully ask that any and all members of our community refrain from sharing these posts, or adding to the negative conversations about OUR district on posts that they may see. When we share negative posts about our own community, district or school, we are contributing to the negative perception about OUR community, district, or school. If you would like to be on the committee that will address this issue, and others that are impeding school safety, please contact us at

Superintendent Barrera always says, "If we don't tell our own story, somebody else will". Help us to tell OUR story by being a part of the solution. #KenedyProud
