Anti-Bullying Specialists

The Jersey City Board of Education prohibits acts of bullying, harassment, and intimidation of students and staff. The board has determined that a safe and civil environment in school is a necessity for students to learn and achieve high academic standards, and for staff to educate students effectively. Harassment, intimidation or bullying, like other disruptive or violent behaviors, is conduct that disrupts both a student’s ability to learn and a school’s ability to educate its pupils in a safe environment. All members of the Jersey City public schools community have a right to live and work in an environment that is safe. Harassment and bullying will not be tolerated because it can lead to more serious violence and because such behavior is gravely inconsistent with district efforts to improve academic performance, improve school attendance and reduce the drop-out rate. Students and staff who are intimidated and fearful cannot give the single-minded attention they need for success.
All students and staff are expected to treat each other with civility and respect and not to engage in behavior that is disruptive or violent. Therefore, the school district will not tolerate acts of harassment, intimidation or bullying against any students or staff.
