Look at Texas school districts and their reported data. This data can show our student growth and our general school demographics. This report is available to the public.
Stay Safe-Denton County
Officer Leslie Willingham of the Denton County Police Department helps serve as an instructor of the Stay Safe Program. Our Health classes on both the junior high and high school campuses are instructed in the Stay Safe Curriculum. Officer Willingham does classes at the high school both spring and fall and the spring only at the junior high campus. This curriculum helps to address a variety of different items: drug facts/updates, functions of the brain on and off drugs, bullying/relationship violence, internet safety, wake up call, court trial. The elementary school is also involved in the Stay Safe program in the fall. Much of the secondary program generally wraps up about the time we host our annual prom.
