Northside ISD students, staff sign "Declaration of Respect" to combat bullying

Declaration of Respect (Sinclair Broadcast Group)

Students at all Northside Independent School District campuses were asked to sign a commitment to respect their peers and themselves.

The "Declaration of Respect" is a show of support for the counseling departments at each school. We were at Taft High School on Friday morning as students signed a classroom-size poster.

"We should all just focus on being more welcoming," said student Paige Andrews. "Everyone deserves to have a good education and a good time in school and not feel threatened or anything. I think it's important that we all area a part of that welcoming environment."

The NISD school board members also signed the declaration in September.
