The goal of the Department of Student Hearings is to apply the Student Code of Conduct fairly and equitably for all students. Jennifer Washington, Director for Student District Hearings, serves as a resource for campus administrative personnel in interpreting and applying the Student Code of Conduct, as well as serving as the District Hearing Officer when students have reached the level at which removal from the regular campus and placement into an alternative setting is being recommended. It is the responsibility of the District Hearing Officer to provide due process to the student and/or parents and make disciplinary decisions that are in the best interest of both the student and the district.
The KISD attendance officers are also included in the Student Hearings department. It is the responsibility of the attendance officers to work with campus personnel and the court system to enforce the compulsory attendance laws of the State of Texas.
The Attendance Officers serving the middle schools and elementary schools are: Ron Ray, Todd Gawryszewski, Katina Bowers, Leon Rosen, and David Smith. They may be reached by contacting Norma Shelley at 336 – 2839. Each High School has its own Attendance Officer who may be reached by calling the school’s main number.
