    Dear Midland Parent/Guardians, 

    Beginning this week, all New Jersey schools and districts must provide parents with another piece of information:  their self-assessed anti-bullying grade.

    A provision in the state’s Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act requires the Commissioner of Education to develop a program to grade the efforts of each public school and district to address bullying in the school environment.

    To do so, the New Jersey Department of Education created a 20-page self-assessment form that each school completed, to measure how well it met requirements of the act.  Those grades must be posted on each school’s website.
     
    The self-assessment gives each school a raw score from 0 to 78, based on how well the school met requirements in eight categories.  The grading rubric includes such areas as providing programs to prevent harassment, intimidation and bullying (HIB); staff training; student curriculum and instruction; reporting and investigation procedures; and proper staffing.

    Please visit our district website at https://rp.bergen.org for more information and to view Midland School Anti-Bullying grades.

    Very sincerely yours,
     
    Michael J. Alberta
    Principal
