Harassment, Intimidation & Bullying (HIB)

New Jersey’s Anti-bullying Bill of Rights was enacted in 2011 to help combat harassment, intimidation and bullying (HIB) in schools throughout the State,

Per Board Policy #5512, the Teaneck Board of Education prohibits acts of harassment, intimidation, or bullying of a student. A safe and civil environment in school is necessary for students to learn and achieve high academic standards.  Harassment, intimidation, or bullying, like other disruptive or violent behaviors, is conduct that disrupts both a student’s ability to learn and a school’s ability to educate its students in a safe and disciplined environment.  Harassment, intimidation, or bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior that may involve a real or perceived power imbalance.  Since students learn by example, school administrators, faculty, staff and volunteers should be commended for demonstrating appropriate behavior, treating others with civility and respect, and refusing to tolerate harassment, intimidation, or bullying.
