Annual Report of Violent Criminal Incidents
Texas statute requires every district to publish a report on violent criminal incidents at their schools. This annual report must include a statement of the number, rate, and type of violent or criminal incidents that occurred on each district campus. During the 2017-2018 school year, Bandera ISD recorded "0" violent criminal incidents in accordance under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (20 U.S. C. S. Section 1232g).
