HARASSMENT, INTIMIDATION & BULLYING (HIB)
MIDLAND SCHOOL ANTI-BULLYING GRADESView/Download Midland School HIB Grade ReportJanuary 11, 2016Dear Parents and 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 by January 13, 2016.
The self-assessment gives each school a raw score from 0 to 75, 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,
Geoffrey W. Zoeller, Jr., Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
