In 2010, the New York State Legislature passed the “Dignity for All Students Act,” also referred to as “DASA,” to address issues related to harassment and discrimination in schools. The law became effective on July 1, 2012 and requires schools to take steps to ensure that their environment is conducive to learning and allows students to feel comfortable, safe, and secure. In establishing the new law the legislature finds that students’ ability to learn and to meet high academic standards, and a schools ability to educate students, is compromised by incidents of discrimination or harassment including bullying, taunting or intimidation.
Incident Reports are available for anyone (students, staff, parents) witnessing an act or being a victim of an act of harassment/bullying:
