    HIB Grade

    The state has asked that each school district submit a self-assessment of its implementation of the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act from January 5, 2011, through June 30, 2013. The self-assessment was viewed as an opportunity to reinforce and strengthen the district’s HIB prevention and intervention programs, policies and practices. The state also used the self-assessment process to assign a “grade” to each district and individual school. 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 (e.g., 65 of 75 points). The maximum total score for a school is 75 points. Click the headline for a letter for additional information on HIB and details realtive to our school district's performance.
