I am writing to request an intra-district transfer for my child, Adara Hansard, under the Texas Education Code, Sec. 25.0342. Adara is 14 years old, currently living at 4415 Whispering Valley Dr. and attending Anderson High in the fall for her freshman year. She has been a victim of bullying throughout her 7th and 8th grade years at Murchison from several of her peers, creating what I believe to be a toxic and unsuitable educational environment for my child that has caused her to be notably afraid of her transition into Anderson High. She struggled with acceptance from peers and the social life she cultivated at Murchison had a huge impact on her mental well-being, resulting in the need for therapy from Mandy Young, an LPC who specializes in anxiety and social skills issues of children and adolescents who have difficulty fitting in or having success at school, and later on psychiatric help resulting in depression, sleep, and anxiety medication.
