New Jersey HIB Definition

It is the goal of the administration, faculty, staff, and parents of iLearn Schools to provide a safe, secure and friendly educational environment for students. iLearn Schools has developed and implemented a School Safety Team (SST) that provides leadership and direction to achieve this goal. The SST serves as a professional learning committee (PLC) to implement programs and procedures to have iLearn Schools in compliance with the rules and regulations of the New Jersey Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights.
