    Guidance for Determining Grades under the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act (P.L.2010, c.122) 2017-18 School Year

    The Commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) is required by state law to grade each public school and school district’s efforts to implement the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act (ABR) (N.J.S.A.18A:17-46). This guidance document has been developed to help the School Safety/School Climate Team (SS/SCT) fulfill its responsibility to complete the School Self-Assessment for Determining Grades under the ABR (Self-Assessment), and to help the chief school administrator (CSA), charter school and renaissance school project lead person to fulfill their required responsibilities.

     

    Conducting the School Self-Assessment

    Each school in the Park Ridge School District, through its SS/SCT, is required to evaluate its implementation of the ABR from July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018 by using the Self-Assessment. The Self-Assessment tool includes eight core elements that address ABR requirements for schools. The SS/SCT must assign a rating for each indicator based on the criteria and available documentation. Samples of documentation that could be used to substantiate the ratings are provided for each indicator.
