2014-2015 SCHOOL CALENDAR - ADOPTED 5/14/2014
District and School Grade Report under the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act
    Early in the 2012-2013 school year, the Margate School Safety Team (a group of administrators and staff from both Ross and Tighe) completed a self-assessment of the district’s initiatives and efforts in order to be in compliance with the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act, which went into effect the previous year.  

    By clicking the link, you can see the raw scores of the data and the sum of the ratings (total score) for all eight core elements, which the district submitted for both schools last spring. The Department of Education has issued the following regarding these grades: "The grade (64 of 75) is not to be represented by a letter grade. It is represented by the sum of the ratings for all of eight core elements."Beginning with the September 2011-2012 school year, our district has conscientiously implemented the requirements found in the Anti Bullying Bill of Rights Act by :
1) We designated a district Anti-Bullying Coordinator (ABC) and two (for each school) Anti-Bullying Specialists (ABS) from current staff in accordance with the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act. Each school’s ABS follows up and investigates any complaint made involving potential Harassment, Intimidation, and Bullying (HIB). Completed investigations are submitted within the State’s timelines to the ABC, who then forwards to the Superintendent of Schools.
2) Both the ABC and the two building specialists (ABS) have attended several trainings related to their responsibilities since the inception of the HIB legislation.
3) District staff has received instruction/training throughout the time the legislation has been in effect. 
Annual parent meetings have been held to explain the meaning and implementation of the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act.
4) The district has broadened its training on the HIB Policy to include assemblies and classroom instruction for students with age-appropriate information on what constitutes bullying.

I have been a Principal and Director of Special Education in the Margate Public Schools since 2009. Before coming to Margate, I was a Vice-Principal at the Fernwood Avenue Middle School, from 2005 to 2009.  From 2002 to 2005, I was a Learning Disability Teacher-Consultant for the Galloway Township Child Study Team.  Prior to becoming a Child Study Team Member, I was a Special Education Teacher in Brigantine and Norfolk, Virginia. In addition to my education experience, I have experience as an adjunct professor at Stockton, along with coaching basketball at the middle school, high school and Division III college level (Stockton).
 
I have a doctoral and master’s degree in administration from Widener University and masters in Special Education (Learning Disabilities and Emotional Disturbances) from Old Dominion University.  I received a Division I scholarship to the College of William and Mary (Williamsburg, VA), where I played basketball for the Tribe and received a Theater Degree. I am a proud resident of Egg Harbor Township since childhood, but see myself as an honorary Margate Resident.  I am proud to work for the Margate City School District and appreciate the community's faith in my abilities.
