ABR (Anti-Bullying Bill Of Rights) District and School Grade Report
In compliance with N.J.S.A. 18A:37-17a and the annual review of the Board of Education’s HIB policy as required in N.J.S.A. 18A:37-15c, the Glen Rock School District has completed a self-assessment in determining the district’s status in complying with the ABR Act. The district is required to report to the BOE and the public the exact grade reports issued by the NJDOE. The purpose is to provide the board and the public the opportunity to learn about the district’s implementation of the ABR. Glen Rock will use this information in its annual review of its HIB prevention programs, approaches and other initiatives. In completing the self-assessment, the use of the reference to “HIB” is intended to be broader than the terms “harassment, intimidation and bullying;” it includes initiatives aimed at addressing anti-bullying and the improvement of school climates, school cultures and other conditions that negatively affect student learning and growth.
