New Jersey has been a leader in the establishment of a strong statutory, regulatory, policy and program framework to support the prevention, remediation and reporting of Harassment, Intimidation, and Bullying (HIB) in schools.

Training all the staff on the new HIB policy and procedures
Adopting HIB program strategies
Implementing proactive responses to HIB
Adopting effective HIB reporting procedures
Reporting, investigating, reviewing results of the investigation and making a final report to the State
