Week of Respect
October 5-9, 2015
New Jersey’s Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights (P.L.2010,c.122) requires that the week beginning with the first Monday in October of each year be designated as the Week of Respect. To recognize the importance of character education, school districts, charter schools and the Renaissance school projects are required to observe the week by providing age-appropriate instruction focusing on preventing HIB (harassment, intimidation and bullying). Approved private schools for students with disabilities are encouraged, but not required, to observe this week.
As we have done since the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights was passed, Garden State Equality will be providing in-person trainings at multiple schools around the state in recognition of the Week of Respect.
