In addition to celebrating the district!s history, it is also vital that all Shore Regional stakeholders observe the district!s present efforts to foster a positive educational environment. Shore Regional has put forth sincere efforts to become compliant with new state legislation articulated in 2011!s Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights. Shore Regional High School!s revised anti-bullying policy along with other anti-bullying efforts reaffirms the district!s commitment to providing every student with a highquality education, in a caring, safe environment. Communication is vital to any organization. It is through communication that cooperation and collaboration occur. Our students, teachers, support staff, parents, administrators and community members who value progress can all be part of a stimulating force when working toward a common goal. I am truly honored and excited to have joined the Shore family. Shore Regional High School ranks among the preeminent secondary schools in the state and unquestionably possesses some of the finest academic, athletic and extracurricular programs. Such excellence energizes me, as it does Shore!s faculty, staff and students, with a pride that only “Blue Devils” know. Please continue to reach out to our administration and staff so that together we can make a difference as we embark on this journey of excellence. Sincerely,

Renae LaPrete Interim Superintendent and Principal


Blue DEVILS STAND AGAINST Harassment, Intimidation and BULLYING (HIB) With the commencement of the 2011-2012 school year, Shore Regional High School District is proud to be in compliance with state mandates regarding new anti-bullying laws adopted in January 2011. Shore Regional has fully embraced the new law and crafted a revised Harassment, Intimidation and Bullying (HIB) policy compliant with the state Department of Education's stipulations. Signed by Governor Chris Christie in January, the bill passed in the Assembly and Senate in November 2010 and has become known as the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights. In preparation for implementation of new anti-HIB measures, Shore Regional administrators, teachers and staff have attended regional training sessions to further gain insight into what has been called the toughest anti-HIB law of its kind in the nation.* Per the new law, Shore Regional has appointed an anti-bullying specialist, an anti-bullying coordinator and formed an anti-bullying team to address HIB incidents. The new law requires specialized investigations of reported incidents of HIB. Incidents may be reported in-person to any Shore Regional employee, to the Vice-Principal's office or online via a reporting form hosted on the district's website. Further anti-bullying training has been planned to meet new professional-development requirements for teachers and administrators. Educational presentations for students have also been planned to further bolster the HIB policy's implementation.
