HIB Self-Assessment Score
The State required that all Districts, through their School Safety Teams, evaluate the implementation of the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act (ABR) using a Self-Assessment. The Self-Assessment covered eight core elements which addressed all of the ABR requirements for schools. The School Safety Teams were to assign a rating for each indicator based on the criteria and available documentation.
Under the Commissioner’s Program, the school grade is a raw score of data and the sum of the ratings for all indicators within each core element on the School Self-Assessment. A minimum score of 50 is required in order to meet all necessary requirements and the maximum score a school can receive is 78. The District’s grade is an average of the total scores of all schools in the school district.
