Changes to Drug Testing Policy
The Board has made changes to the school’s drug testing policy. The new policy can be found in the updated 2017-18 Student Handbook and Code of Conduct.
In compliance with David’s Law, Oglesby ISD is now using the Stop!t app to allow students/parents to anonymously report bulling. When an anonymous report is filed, the school will notify the parent of the student being bullied to discuss the problem and the options available.
To report a case of bullying, click on the Stop!t logo and use the code Tigers#01 The app can also be downloaded on your mobile device. Go to your App Store and search for the Stop!t bullying app.
