Dignity For All Students Act (DASA)

The goal of the Dignity for All Students Act is to create a safe and supportive school climate where students can learn and focus, rather than fear being discriminated against and/or verbally and/ or physically harassed. All public elementary and secondary school students have the right to attend school in a safe, welcoming, considerate, and caring environment. The Dignity Act states that NO student shall be subjected to harassment or discrimination by employees or students on school property or at a school function based on their actual or perceived race, color, weight, national origin, ethnic group, religion, religious practice, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or sex.

 

DIGNITY ACT COORDINATORS (DAC)

One administrator in every school is designated as the Dignity Act Coordinator (DAC) and is trained in methods to respond
to human relations in the areas of race, color, weight, national origin, ethnic group, religion, religious practices, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or sex.
