BCSS Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights - Self Assessment Grade for 2017-18

Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights - Self Assessment for 2017-18

As per the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act (ABR) (P.L.2010,c.122), the Bergen County Special Services School District has posted its 2017-18 Self-Assessment for Determining Grades under the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights to the District’s and to each Program’s webpage.

Beginning with the September 2011-12 school year, our District has implemented the requirements in the Anti-Bullying Bill of Right Act by initiating district-wide activities, programs and trainings to increase awareness. In order to foster safe and positive learning conditions for students, the District and each Program’s grades are part of an integrated process for reinforcing and strengthening each Program’s climate and culture through prevention and intervention efforts targeted toward harassment, intimidation and bullying (HIB). We utilize this data to educate the community about current school practices and engage them in identifying and addressing areas for improvement.

Under the Commissioner’s Program, each Program’s grade is a raw score of data and the sum of the ratings for all indicators within each core element on the School Self-Assessment. The maximum total score for each Program is 78 points and is not represented by a letter grade. The District’s grade is an average of the total scores of all Programs.
