Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
You may consider a suit here against the persons involved and the school district.You have a right to sue all for damages from the assault.You also need to take daughter to file a police report and complaint as this is assault here in Texas.You can do both is you choose. I am so sorry you have had to go through this.
The lawyer may take this contingent fee which means you don't pay until recovery.
Our state bar has lawyer referral for you and they cover the whole state.
I agree with you that there is no justification for such an assault on her regardless of what was said.I hope you pursue this.If your daughter were to decease you would open up probate so the funds can pass to you her parent.
I do appreciate the chance to help you today.Please let me know if you have more follow up.
In Texas, the elements for a case against a defendant for assault and battery are the same. Prosecutors must prove one of the following:
The crime of assault may be elevated to the crime of aggravated assault in certain circumstances. Aggravated assault includes the same elements of the crime of assault, but it involves either the use or exhibition of a deadly weapon during the act of assault, or it can involve causing serious bodily injury to the victim.

Well you may consider the last one at least.This is terrible and you may decide to pursue it, the school is always trying to sweep this stuff under the rug.
