New Jersey Statutes, Title: 18A, EDUCATION
Chapter 37: Submission of pupils to authority
Section: 18A:37-13: Findings, declarations relative to adoption of harassment and bullying prevention policies.
1. The Legislature finds and declares that: a safe and civil environment in school is necessary for students to learn and achieve high academic standards; harassment, intimidation or bullying, like other disruptive or violent behaviors, is conduct that disrupts both a student's ability to learn and a school's ability to educate its students in a safe environment; and since students learn by example, school administrators, faculty, staff, and volunteers should be commended for demonstrating appropriate behavior, treating others with civility and respect, and refusing to tolerate harassment, intimidation or bullying.
