It may be a little tricky at first for school districts to meet the guidelines and responsibilities. The second annual New Jersey Anti-Bullying Conference will bring together state and national scholars and practitioners to present their expertise and knowledge about the subject.

The conference is critical for administrators, teachers, psychologists, social workers, and counselors from schools and any other organization working with New Jersey’s youth.

The conference will be held on June 8, 2012 at Monmouth University’s Rebecca Stafford Student Center from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The event is sponsored by the Monmouth University’s School of Social Work and the Ceceilyn Miller Institute for Leadership and Diversity in America.

Acting Commissioner of Education of the State of New Jersey Chris Cerf is scheduled to speak at 12:30 p.m. He will address the requirements of the new Anti-Bullying Law, and its impact as it pertains to school districts and their service providers. Attendees will also learn and discuss evidence-based strategies and solutions for preventing bullying while building safe, caring school communities.

There are several other speakers who will be attending including: Stan Davis; Christa M. Tinari, director, Peace Praxis; Dr. Chavonne Lenoir Perotte, executive director of PCLT’s NJ Office; Dr. Margo R. Ross, senior director of development at PCLT; Dr. Paula C. Rodríguez Rust, Spectrum Diversity LLC; Dr. Judith Springer, associate director and senior trainer for CMI; and Dr. Rita Johnson, Cheyney University.

“Our organization is extremely pleased to bring together such distinguished guests to address this important issue, and to help improve the overall educational experience for our children,” said Christopher C. Irving, executive director & CEO of the Ceceilyn Miller Institute for Leadership & Diversity in America.
