2015-2016 HIB Self Assessment Holland Township District and School Grade Report

HIB Self-Assessment Holland Township District and School Grade Report

The New Jersey Department of Education has posted School and District Harassment, Intimidation and Bullying Grades as stated in the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act. Our grade was determined by conducting a self assessment in the following areas: HIB Programs, Approaches and Other Initiatives, Training on the BOE Approved HIB Policy, Staff Instruction and Training Programs, Curriculum and Instruction on HIB and Related Information and Skills, HIB Personnel, School-Level HIB Incident Reporting Procedure, HIB Investigative Procedure and HIB Reporting.

Our self-assessment for the 2015-2016 school year identified several areas of strength. Our district meets all state guidelines for implementing HIB investigations, procedures and reporting. We have implemented school-wide programs to support a positive and proactive school culture and climate. We continue to implement programs such as Words of Wisdom and Step To Respect to foster student understanding of the importance of respect and kindness.

Areas identified for focus during the 2016-2017 school year include the continuation of school-wide programs and themes to ensure that character education is curriculum based and reinforced throughout the school year. Our goals this year include the development of an everyday hero program that allows students to understand the importance of standing up for each other.  The program includes parents and community members and is our yearlong theme.
