Rutledge Stadium Clear Bag Policy

As football season approaches, we wanted to remind everyone of the clear bag policy at Rutledge Stadium.  There will be a lot of events during the course of the year and we would like to avoid inconveniencing fans coming to the stadium with bags that are not allowed. Backpacks will not be allowed due to their size, even if they are clear.  Keep in mind this only for Rutledge Stadium.  We appreciate your understanding and patience as we try to make for a safer environment.

JISD's Commitment To Safety And Security

Recently our district, like other districts around the city and nation, has been affected by the reports of recent school violence around the country. This has resulted in more tension and anxiety among students and even staff. We want you to know that we are doing all things possible to maintain a safe environment on our campuses and to make students feel calm and secure.

Please know that any kind of threat has not nor will not in the future be taken lightly. Our administration and police officers investigate any threat thoroughly whether it comes from inside or outside the campus.  It does not matter whether one thinks the threat was made as a joke or not…especially in the current climate, it will be investigated and there will be consequences. 

Safety on our campuses is not an option…it is a must-have if students are to learn. 

We would ask that you as a parent/guardian of your child please remind them of the impact of such actions or even spreading rumors among other students. Instead, we ask to encourage them to contribute to a safe atmosphere at their school by being calm and if they see or hear something, say something to an administrator, officer or teacher...they can help.
Thank you for your support,

Judson Justice Students Prep To Compete

Members of the Judson High School Criminal Justice Student Association are training and practicing to compete in the upcoming Texas High School Mock Trial competition.  For the last five years, the Judson CJSA members have been participating in this big event and it is a great experience for those interested in how the legal system works and the process of a real court trial. 
One of the coolest parts of this program at Judson is the partnership it has with St. Mary's University School of Law. Mr. Sheppard, the Dean of the School of Law, allows our students to use the StMU moot court room every Thursday to practice and get the feel of being in a court room.  That will be important experience when they get to attend a Mock Trial clinic in Dallas in November.  It'll really count when the Regional Competition comes around in January...That will be held in downtown San Antonio at the Bexar County Court House. 
It's great practice and a wonderful opportunity to learn the process of a court room... beyond what we may see in the movies or on TV.


Judson Students Pitch In For Night Out

National Night Out is a big effort across the country to visit with and in some cases reacquaint ourselves with our neighbors to assert safety and security in our neighborhoods.  It joins citizens with each other and our law enforcement agencies to work together for safer cities. Participating in this effort were Judson High School students with the Criminal Justice program. They were sponsors helping support the Converse Police Department's part in the evening.  It's great to see these students volunteering their time and efforts.

Board Recognitions 8-18-16

Board recognitions usually take a break during the summer time just because most everyone goes different directions during the break, but JISD Police Chief Teresa Ramon has been busy this summer. She was recently recognized by the Texas School Based Law Enforcement with a very prestigious honor.  Because of her impact here and beyond, at its recent state conference, the TxSBLE recently awarded her with a Lifetime Achievement Award. This is a pioneering award that recognizes law enforcement officers who have established and sustained efforts toward keeping schools safe and secure. The JISD Board of Trustees wanted to recognize Chief for this achievement.  Congratulations to her and the JISD Police Department.
