The program is hosted by the Department’s Office of Governance and Leadership in partnership with Brookdale Community College’s Education Department. The program is open to school superintendents, principals, administrators and supervisors. It takes place in the lecture hall of the MAN Building 105 on the Brookdale campus.

The purpose of this forum is to provide school districts with an overview of the new anti-bullying law and what it requires school districts to do.
