The Dignity for All Students Act

New York State’s Dignity for All Students Act (Dignity Act or DASA) seeks to provide the State’s public elementary and secondary school students with a safe and supportive environment free from discrimination, intimidation, taunting, harassment, and bullying on school property, a school bus and/or at a school function.”

 DASA was enacted to provide students with a safe, supportive educational environment free from discrimination, harassment and bullying. In accordance with DASA, Liberty Central schools condemn and strictly prohibit all forms of discrimination, harassment and bullying.

Liberty Central Schools already meet the DASA standards in many respects. From in-school sessions led by counselors to in school assembly programs and after school clubs, students at all grade levels are exposed to the ideas of tolerance, compassion and respect. Most recently, Liberty Middle/High School launched a safety messaging system that allows students to anonymously report instances of bullying through an online form or text message.
