NJ Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act - District and School Grades
As part of New Jersey’s updated Anti-Bullying law, Fair Haven Public Schools have been graded on their efforts to comply with the new regulations to protect students from harassment and create a safe school climate. Statewide, the scores range from 0 to 75. They measure our efforts from Jan. 5, 2011 to June 30, 2013.
Our school district received a grade of 69. It is an average of the total scores of both of our schools in the district. Knollwood scored a 69, as did Sickles. Please review the PDF files attached. One is the official state report, the other a district-created spreadsheet that is an easier read, the third an NJDOE memo on guidance for grading schools and districts.
The scores are based on a 20-page self-assessment that rates performance in eight areas, including prevention, staff training, student curriculum and instruction, and reporting and investigation procedures.
