Franklin Lakes - The Ramapo Indian Hills Board of Education presented the district's self-assessment under the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act, revealing identical scores at the two schools, at its Sept. 26 meeting.

Per the self-assessment presented by Michael Marano, district anti-bullying coordinator, both Indian Hills and Ramapo High School received scores of 66 in the self-assessment.  This self-assessment is for the time period from July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016.

The self-assessment is composed of eight core elements, with 26 questions.  Each question is rated on a scale from zero to three, with the lowest rating meaning the school "does not meet the requirements" and the highest, that the school "exceeds the requirements."  The maximum total score a school can receive is 78.

The program requires school districts to grade each of its public schools and their efforts to implement the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act.

The self-assessment is based on the core elements: HIB (Harassment, Intimidation, Bullying) programs, approaches and other initiatives; incident reporting procedures; investigation procedures; training on HIB policy; HIB personnel; HIB reporting; other staff instruction and training and curriculum and instruction.
