Each school, through its School Safety Team, is require to evaluate its implementation of the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act from July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019 by using the "School Self-Assessment for Determining Grades under the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights". This Self-Assessment tool includes eight core elements which address all of the eight core requirements for schools. School Safety Teams must assign a rating for each indicator based on the criteria and available documentation.
Althea Gibson Academy received a score of 76.
The East Orange School District received an average score of 74.
While completing the Self-Assessment, we learned that our school has demonstrated strengths in the integration of HIB prevention themes into our instructional program. This has resulted in the creation of positive school-wide conditions.
