Perceptions of the School Community as It Implements New Jersey Harassment, Intimidation, and Bullying Legislation
Schlenoff, Fran
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, College of Saint Elizabeth
This study examined the success of five elementary schools in their implementation of the 2011 New Jersey Harassment, Intimidation, and Bullying law (NJ HIB law). It also explored stakeholders' perceptions of school climate since the law went into effect. Fourth and fifth grade parents, students, teachers, and counselors in the district's five elementary schools were invited to participate in surveys, focus groups, and interviews. The study revealed that these stakeholders supported the spirit of the law but felt that there were unexpected obstacles in the law that impeded its effectiveness to support a positive school climate and eliminate bullying. The results of the study will aid the district's elementary schools to improve implementation of the HIB law and guide stakeholders as they move to create a positive school climate and eliminate bullying.
