No Bully Zone

Anti-Bullying Information

In January 2011, Governor Christie signed into law new legislation that is intended to strengthen standards for preventing, reporting, investigating and responding to incidents of bullying among students. The new law includes major changes to:

·        Definition of Harassment, Intimidation and Bullying (HIB) (HIB definition - Gujarati translation - Spanish translation)

·        District staff function

·        Policy and procedures

·        Programs

·        Training requirements

·        Public reporting
