With the recent passage of David’s Law (SB 179) by the Texas Senate in 2017, schools must install a way for students to anonymously report an incident of bullying (including cyberbullying). Granger ISD has chosen to integrate HIBster (harrasment, intimidation & bullying) software to report these incidents if they are happening. Please click on the HIBster icon to start an incident report or to find out what could constitute a potential bullying or cyberbullying incident.

Granger ISD takes all offenses very seriously.

In good faith we are to believe that all reported matters are the absolute truth and answered to the best of your knowledge.
