HIB Grades

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).  Through a yearly self-assessment districts are assessed on the following eight core elements:

1. HIB Programs, Approaches or Other Initiatives

2. Training on the BOE-approved HIB Policy and Procedures

3. Other Staff Instruction and Training Programs

4. Curriculum and Instruction on HIB and Related Information and Skills

5. HIB Personnel

6. School-Level HIB Incident Reporting Procedure

7. HIB Investigation Procedure

8. HIB Reporting 

The highest possible score is a 78, and a score of 52 demonstrates that the district has met all the requirements.  A score between 53 and 78 demonstrates that the district has exceeded all requirements. 

We are currently working with a curriculum mapping company to host all K-12 curricula. This project will be finalized by Fall, 2023.
In the meantime, if you have any specific questions about our curricula, please reach out to your school administration​
