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 ofHarassment, Intimidation, and Bullying (HIB) in schools. 

Downe Township Elementary School is committed to providing an educational environment for all students, employees, and volunteers that is safe and civil and free from harassment, intimidation or bullying.  Harassment, intimidation or bullying  (HIB) behaviors refer to any written, verbal, cyber or physical act, whether or not the act occurs  on or off  school grounds  that has the effect of  substantially  disrupting the orderly operation of the school by:

  • Physically or emotionally harming a student or damaging the student’s property; or
  • Substantially  interfering with a student’s education; or
  • Severely, persistently, or pervasively creating an intimidating, threatening or hostile educational environment.

HIB behaviors can take many forms including but are not limited to: slurs, rumors, jokes, demeaning comments, cartoons, pranks, gestures, physical attacks, threats, or other written, oral, electronic, or physical actions. Some of these behaviors may not rise to the level of harassment, intimidation, or bullying but still may be prohibited by building, classroom, or program rules and will be dealt with by the building administration, as outlined in the Student Code of Conduct.

Please check the  NJDOE website on HIB  for information and resources to aid schools in the establishment of HIB policies, the adoption of HIB program strategies, the implementation of proactive responses to HIB and the adoption of effective HIB reporting procedures.
