Wednesday, February 1, 2017 | 2015 - 2016 Harassment-Intimidation-Bullying Report

Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Grade Report 2015 – 2016

Freedom Prep Middle School Grade: 54 of 78
Freedom Prep Charter School Grade: 54 of 78

Overview

On January 5, 2011, the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act (P.L.2010, c.122, (which can be found here) was signed into law to strengthen the standards and procedures for preventing, reporting, investigating and responding to incidents of harassment, intimidation and bullying (HIB) of students that occur on school grounds and off school grounds under specified circumstances. The law was adopted, in part, in response to research on the incidence, prevalence and effects of HIB that has emerged since the adoption of the original HIB law in 2002.

  • If you want to provide even more context…
