Our school district has conscientiously implemented the requirements found in the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act. During the first three years of implementation of the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act, our school district/school has made progress in addressing and improving harassment, intimidation and bullying and the school climate and culture by implementing the Olweus program and a system of positive behavior support. The Self-Assessment helped our school district/school to identify areas for improvement. The district plans to further assess the strengths and vulnerabilities of learning by reviewing parent surveys.

A document titled "Guidance for Schools on Implementing the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act" is available by clicking here. The guidance document was developed in consultation with the Division of Civil Rights (DCR), New Jersey Department of Law and Public Safety, as required under N.J.S.A. 18A:37-24a. The document was also developed in consultation with experts on the subjects of bullying, school climate and culture, and social-emotional and character development through the department’s Safe and Supportive Schools Advisory Committee and HIB Guidance Document Subcommittee.
