HIB School District and School Grades
Required by the Anti-Bullying Bill of HIB Policy and Information Rights Act

Since of the inception of the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act (ABR) in September of 2011, our school district has conscientiously implemented the requirements found in the ABR by revising our district policy on Harassment, Intimidation and Bullying (HIB) in order to keep it current with the standards of the law. Our schools have enacted annual programs district wide to reinforce the importance of good character and citizenship among our student population. Over the past five years, we have made great progress in addressing and decreasing HIB, as well as improved the school climate and culture in a variety of ways. The Little Ferry School District and community have come to recognize October as the Month of Safety & Respect, where we provide a variety programs that recognize the Week of Respect, School Violence Awareness Week, Red Ribbon Week, Stomp out Bullying Day and National Spirit Day. Each year we continue with our Caught Being Kind Program, where students are “caught” and rewarded for their random acts of kindness. This year, we continue with this momentum as we introduce a new structured balanced social-emotional learning program across all grade levels where students are exposed to character education in the classroom. What’s more, our School Safety Team continues to meet in an effort to assess the school climate, programs and policy for continued improvement.

In order to foster safe and positive learning conditions for students, the school and district grades are part of an integrated process for reinforcing and strengthening a school’s climate and culture through prevention and intervention efforts targeted towards harassment, intimidation, and bullying (HIB). District and school staff are encouraged to use the data to educate staff and the community about current practices and engage them in identifying and addressing areas for improvement.

The Department of Education is not issuing any associated value or ranking for the raw and average scores. The raw and average cores reflect the school and school district’s degree of compliance with the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act, as determined primarily through each school’s self-assessment of its implementation of the ABR.
