As per the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act (ABR) (P.L.2010, c.122), the Hillside Public Schools has posted its Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act grades to the school district's HIB webpage, and to each individual school's webpage. Please feel free to contact Dr. Sharon Festante, Anti-Bullying Coordinator if you have any questions.


Since the implementation of the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act, our school district has made progress in addressing and improving harassment, intimidation and bullying and the school climate and culture by implementing systemic character education programs in all schools.
