Welcome to the Margate School District web site!
 
District Announcements
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.

Currently, I am an adjunct professor in the FDU Teacher Training Program. I previously taught in Stockton's Alternate Route Program for 8 years and was an adjunct professor in Georgian Court University's graduate program (administration).
