parents against hazing, bullying and coach abuses in uvalde high school athletics uvalde topix chapter. the uvalde topix has provided the uvalde CISD members/parents an alternative means of communication for any coach abuses, hazing and bullying.the interaction is instantaneous and can be direct. the administration will have a hard time keeping things quiet. parents should be made aware of any form of coach abuses, hazing and bullying in the uvalde high school athletics program. the reporting of coach abuses, hazing and bullying must be done responsively to avoid its legal consequences. parents will have a chance to hear opinion, advise and guidance from other members of this school district. lets encourage our children/students to report these incidents and will help prevent victimizing the victim.

so who's going to tell the coaches and administration?

if all you're going to do is talk about it here, what good will it do? Have you ever thought about maybe showing up at the monthly school board meetings to express your concerns in person?

I'm not surprised - it's all you people ever do. You bitch about things but never have the balls to actually get in their face so things will change.

the way i see it, people here are tired of attending the school board meeting because they are just being voted out. obviously one has to follow the grievance process of the school district. this is the only way a parent can put a complaint on the record and will require action by the administration. some parents in this district have experienced going through the grievance process and sharing those experiences and things they learn will help other parents. its not all about bitching. its all about sharing of information and about the students' safety in uvalde highs school athletics. Do you think the student liason officer, hal harrell, will help parents during the grievance process? they are there to protect them selves - that is the culture that has evolve in the education profession. it is so hard to trust them to investigate parents/students complaint. its unfortunate that the grievance process has lost its integrity. this is the reason why parents should come together to help prevent injuries( physical, mental, emotional) related to hazing, bullying and coaches abuse in this school district. there is no medium, like home room parent association, where parents can discuss problems in this school district amongst them selves. school board members should be elected from this home room association. right now there are school board members who do not a child in the uvalde public school system. in the school board meeting, they only give you 3 minutes to talk and some school board member does not even pay attention. you can see them looking at the ceiling while a person is talking. what do you think of sharing this information and opinion. is this okay for you?

I probably know better than anyone here at how the grievance process is just a joke. That being said, parents only seem to care when it's their kids that have issues or problems with the school.

You're right, there's no existing organization to voice concerns, but why do you suppose that is? The way I see it, there's a lack of concern on both sides of the table.

The only way to get anything is to vote out members of the board that have just been sitting there for years and do absolutely nothing for the school.

Things won't change until enough people get together IN PERSON, not online and do something about it. Until then, you're just wasting your breath, time and effort.

Get back in touch with me when you decide YOU are going to put together a REAL organization to address these issues.

if you read he district policies, it is suppose to be exactly what you are saying here. but in this school district? it is done differently. again depending who you are complaining against with and the nature of your complaint. you will be surprised. it is sad but that the way it is here in UCISD.

i think the reason for the lack of concern is that the parents are not given a chance to talk to each other. you can only hear it at work, wall mart or in HEB. they are rarely published in the paper or broadcast in the radio. i think uvalde topix is a good start. i know of a classic case that shows that the grievance process is not only a joke but showed evidence violation of student's rights and covering up for the violation of the law. it would be also good to pursue class action law suit as mentioned in the other posting. the biggest problem is putting up the " REAL organization" . correct me if i am wrong, as you may notice only few people are actively involve in the single member district but it went through - what an effort.

put your money where your mouth is...

forget topix, you'll have the same problem of people not wanting to step forward and use their real name. Everyone wants to bitch but no one wants to sign their name to it. People have false courage sitting behind a comp when they don't have to use their name...so tell me, what's yours?

To all Parents,
who are concern about Hazing, Bulling & Coach abuse. You need to get the San Antonio Media involved to resolved this matter...Trust ME, that is the last thing Uvalde School Board wants!!! All you parents have to do is call SA-Media (news)let them know what is exactly is going on & they will be there in a heart beat.
Best of Luck

Why would the San Antonio media care about anything that is happening here? Unless it is a very sensational story, they aren't even going to give you the time of day. They have plenty of schools with problems in their city.

i am curious to know what you all consider as coach abuse. Please give an example (without names of course). We can view this topic from many angles. One - parents in Uvalde baby their children so much that they get their feelings hurt whenever their babies are being reprimanded. I believe that this is one of the reasons why many sports here dont go beyond expectations. There is a lack of mental toughness and stamina within our athletes because they get butt hurt when yelled at by coaches. Its doesnt help that parents are constantly on the defense when it comes to school official, or coaches in this case. If parents dont support the coaches neither will the athletes, and it will be very difficult to actually coach the kid. Two- the kids are being verbally abused by coaches and we need for athletic administration to do its job. And sorry to say but Coach Trevino is a piss poor athletic director. He may know his football game well, but can care less as to what is going on in other sports. He needs to be the first one to go before any other coach.

If you want the media you can maybe go to this website and email barry the news reporter to tell him about your problem and maybe he will investigate it. http://www.kens5.com/news/investigates/

what'd you expect? UCISD doesn't have the money OR the reputation to bring in good people, especially coaches. You have to remember that before this, our "athletic director" was not an AD, and not even a head coach, just an assistant. He came to Uvalde because it'll look good on his resume when his contract is up and goes looking for a real job. Thanks to a piss-poor administration, our athletic program will always be mediocre at best with our teams never advancing past district.

I have a solution, let put the miracle workers in as coaches, by these I mean Helpless Hal, Lovely Di, Vavoso Brown as coaches. They should make the team go far, just look what they have done for academics. LOL.
The sad thing is the people here talk all this smack and then don't do anything. Just look what happened at Dalton last month then all of the sudden everything is covered.
These three continue to be a waste but no one holds them accountable.

its like coach lindsey, she has a couple reprimands on her resume and they still keep her around, she make fu### up comments towards the kids and no replacing her, if she wasnt the cross country coach uvalde wld be having major participation in the program. kids quit on her this year due to her remarks and lack of respect towards them. she has no idea how to coach cross country. it was embarrasing to see that the other schools in the district had more kids in their program, heck even some of the jr high schools had more kids than the overall uvalde team. all im sayin is put someone to coach cross country who wants to be there and is not overwhelmed with other things and not focusing on the cc kids, uvalde used to be dominant in cross country and the talent is there, just bring in someone who can take advantage of the talent and bring uvalde back to prominence.
