Harrassment, Intimidation and Bullying (HIB)

Harrassment, Intimidation and Bullying (HIB)

Teacher candidates should check with his/her clinical educator or school principal to learn the HIB reporting procedures of the school district to which he/she is assigned.  Every district should have a written policy on dealing with HIB.  This is required by law; be sure to get a copy.

New Jersey has established a strong statutory, regulatory, policy and program framework to support the prevention, remediation and reporting of Harassment, Intimidation & Bullying (HIB) in schools. The following link provides information and resources on the establishment of HIB policies, the adoption of HIB program strategies, the implementation of proactive responses to HIB and the adoption of HIB reporting procedures: www.state.nj.us/education/students/safety/behavior/hib/#si
