Katy ISD Collaborates with FBI in Think Before You Post Campaignhttp://www.katyisd.org/Lists/latestnews/DispForm.aspx?ID=949Katy ISD Collaborates with FBI in Think Before You Post Campaign2018-09-28T19:55:12Z<div class="ExternalClass30B08DA3ECDC4FD78281ACC6C8A067BE"><p>​<span style="text-align:justify;">Hoax threats are not a joke.  This type of action can lead to serious legal consequences, even if there was never an intent to carry out the threat.  Katy Independent School District has joined forces with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Houston Division and various other law enforcement agencies to launch a public awareness campaign entitled #ThinkBeforeYouPost. </span></p><p style="text-align:justify;">Members of the Houston Police Department, the Harris County Sheriff's Office, police chiefs from Houston, Katy, Fort Bend and Aldine Independent School Districts as well as Crime Stoppers of Houston and Clear Channel Outdoor seek to educate the public about the consequences of making hoax threats of violence to schools and other public places.  Every threat is taken seriously and this type of behavior is considered a crime which can lead to a sentence of up to five years in prison, if escalated to a federal crime.  If a federal charge is not warranted, state charges can be considered.  </p><p style="text-align:justify;">"I would like to give a word of commendation to the federal authorities for putting together an effort including law enforcement agencies from area school districts. This is a campaign that creates awareness with young people and also with their parents," said Robert Jinks, Katy ISD Chief of Police.<br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">According to authorities, posting false threats through social media platforms or any electronic means, not only requires countless hours of investigation by law enforcement agencies but it also drains school resources and ends up costing taxpayers' money.   In some cases, schools shut down resulting in the loss of instructional time for students and teachers.  </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Misguided attempts at humor are no laughing matter and can end up ruining a student's future aspirations and career opportunities.  Katy ISD seeks the public's assistance to curb hoax threats among our student population.  Below you will find additional resources to share with family and friends.  Remember hoax threats are not a joke, so <span style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong>think before you post!​</strong></span></p><p style="text-align:justify;"><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong></strong></span><strong style="text-align:left;">Resources:</strong></p><ul><li><a href="https://www.fbi.gov/video-repository/think-before-you-post-psa.mp4/view">Think Before You Post PSA</a> </li><li><a href="https://www.fbi.gov/audio-repository/ftw-podcast-hoax-threats-campaign-052318.mp3/view">FBI, This Week: Campaign Addresses Consequences of Hoax Threats</a> </li><li><a href="https://www.fbi.gov/audio-repository/ftw-podcast-espanol-hoax-threats-campaign-053118.mp3/view">Esta Semana en el FBI: Por Medio de una Campaña se Abordan las Consecuencias de las Amenaza</a></li><li>​</li><li></li></ul><div><span style="font-size:14px;"><img src="/PublishingImages/Lists/latestnews/AllItems/Think%20Before%20You%20Post%20Picture.jpg" alt="Think Before You Post Picture.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:607px;" /><br></span></div><div><span style="font-size:14px;"><img src="/PublishingImages/Lists/latestnews/AllItems/Think%20Before%20You%20Post%20Picture2.jpg" alt="Think Before You Post Picture2.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:589px;" /><br></span></div><div><span style="font-size:14px;"><br></span></div></div>

Thus, thousands of Katy ISD teachers, administrators and staff, hugged and shook hands as they participated in this annual event marking the official start of the 2018-2019 academic year and most importantly, the kickoff of the District's 100 year anniversary.</span><span style="text-align:justify;"> </span><br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">"The stories of our past add to the legacy we are all a part of today. It helps us define who we are. It's part of our family tree." said Katy ISD Superintendent Lance Hindt. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">The celebration's theme was "A Century of Legacy." Superintendent Hindt and Board of Trustees President Courtney Doyle praised everyone's efforts in making Katy ISD, one of the best school districts. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">"Thanks to you," said Doyle, "Our students are some of the top performing kiddos in the state and country, our community is thriving, and as a result, Katy is one of the fastest-growing school districts in the nation."</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Participants were reminded of the struggles brought on by Harvey, the passage of the 2017 bond that will provide campus renovations and new schools, and goals and strategies that will be employed in classrooms and campuses across the district to encourage personalized learning and strengthen student support systems. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">With the presentation of commemorative rings, educators Leslyn Jacks of Katy Elementary and Amanda Sandlin of Tompkins High School were recognized as the two District's Teachers of the Year. For several educators, this event was a reminder of Katy's rich history and a source of encouragement.  </p><p style="text-align:justify;">"There is a tremendous amount of history and culture in Katy. I have worked for the District for 13 years and there are things I did not know. It is very inspirational," said Elise Allen, Assistant Principal at Griffin Elementary. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Convocation also highlighted the legacy of Mr. Roosevelt Alexander, one of Katy ISD's namesakes and the Beckendorff family. <a href="https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ozezgfj6eg98cyw/AADFjrMt1qdk0Kl4IMlFNnPga?dl=0">Enjoy photos of this year's convocation!</a></p></div>
