HIB Self-Assessment Score
The State requires all schools to complete an annual HIB self-assessment. This assessment grades each public school and the school district's efforts to implement the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act (ABR).
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 (ex: 65 of 78 points). The maximum total score for a school is 78 points. A minimum score of 50 is needed in order to meet all necessary requirements. The school district's grade is an average of the total scores of all schools in the school district.
Old Bridge School District Score 75 out of 78
Southwood Elementary School Score 76 out of 78
Currently, the Old Bridge School District has several character education programs in place and due to the implementation of these programs, many of our schools have been recognized as national and state schools of character.
