The Killeen Independent School district wants to let parents and students know just how much trouble they can get into for making threats against school campuses.
KISD will hold a special meeting March 21 for parents and community members regarding Internet and social media safety for children and the consequences students will face if they make even a hoax threat against a school.
The parent and community meeting will be held at 6 p.m. March 21 at the Harker Heights High School auditorium.
District officials will hold a series of meetings with students at middle and high schools from March 25-29 and elementary school counselors will make a presentation to students grade by grade.
“It is important that students and parents are aware of the potential danger that students face on social media and the internet,” Superintendent John Craft said.
The meetings are designed to provide parents and students the latest informaton about dangerous social media apps and websites, and the type of trends in online dangers that law enforcement officials are seeing.
In addition, officials will talk to parents and students about the very real and damaging consequences that students will receive if they make a threat against students, staff or the school in general.
