Montgomery Township School District Anti-Bullying Information: H.I.B.
Montgomery Township Schools has always had programs in place to educate students about Character Education and bullying. The new Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights confirms all we support, to provide every student with a safe learning environment that is free from harassment, intimidation and bullying (HIB).
"Harassment, intimidation or bullying" means any gesture, any written, verbal or physical act, or any electronic communication, whether it be a single incident or a series of incidents, that is reasonably perceived as being motivated either by any actual or perceived characteristic, such as race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, or a mental, physical or sensory disability, or by any other distinguishing characteristic, that takes place on school property, at any school-sponsored function, on a school bus, or off school grounds as provided for in section 16 of P.L.2010, c.122 (C.18A:37-15.3), that substantially disrupts or interferes with the orderly operation of the school or the rights of other students and that:
A. a reasonable person should know, under the circumstances, will have the effect of physically or emotionally harming a student or damaging the student's property, or placing a student in reasonable fear of physical or emotional harm to his person or damage to his property;
B. has the effect of insulting or demeaning any student or group of students; orC. creates a hostile educational environment for the student by interfering with a student's education or by severely or pervasively causing physical or emotional harm to the student.With the new Anti-Bullying law in place, you may find the contact information below helpful to answer any questions or concerns that arise during the school year.
