NES WEEK OF RESPECT
Week of Respect – The Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act (P.L.2010, c.122) requires that the week beginning with the first Monday in October of each year (October 2-6 in 2017) be designated as the Week of Respect in New Jersey. To recognize the importance of character education, school districts, charter schools and Renaissance school projects are required to observe the week by providing age-appropriate instruction focusing on preventing HIB.
What does this mean for us?
It means character education. It means talking about the CARES program in classes. It means starting to implement the Olweus lessons. It means doing what we already do.
