On December 22, 2015, the New Jersey Department of Education released the Self-Assessment for Determining Grades under the Anti-Bullying Bills of Rights District and School Grade Report for the Shamong Township School District. This report is one of the requirements under the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act.
In order to foster safe and positive learning conditions for students, the school and district grades are part of an integrated process for reinforcing and strengthening a school's climate and culture through prevention and intervention efforts targeted toward harassment, intimidation, and bullying. The data gathered on the Self-Assessment Report is used to identify and address areas for improvement.
The maximum total number of points a school may receive is 78. For the 2016-2017 school year, Indian Mills Elementary School received a 65 and Indian Mills Middle School received a 66. The school district's grade was a 63, this is an average of the total scores of both of the schools in our district. A letter grade is not issued for schools or the district.
