• NJASA Legal Department Research Services - November 2020


    Sorting through laws and regulations related to acts of harassment, intimidation, and bullying (HIB) remains a complex problem in New Jersey public schools. The November Administrative Guide will update our previous Administrative Guides on the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act.


    In addition, the School News Briefs discusses two new cases including one case in which the Appellate Division held that a female teacher, who had waived health benefits but requested them following her board-approved maternity leave, was entitled to health benefits from the board; maternity leave was not a break in service based on the applicable contract.


    The Special Education Bulletin likewise reviews two new cases including one in which an ALJ held that a board had no obligation to rely on three-year-old evaluation performed by another school district to determine the current eligibility of a student attending a private high school in the district.
