School Self-Assessment for Determining Grades under the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act
The school self-assessment is completed each year by all schools in the state of New Jersey. This assessment evaluates the school district's efforts to implement the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act.
The school 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 (ex: 65 of 78 points). The maximum total score for a school is 78 points. A minimum score of 50 is needed in order to meet all necessary requirements. The school district's grade is an average of the total scores of all schools in the district.
