New York State’s Dignity for All Students Act (DASA)

The goal of the Dignity for All Students Act (DASA), which took effect July 1, 2013, is to provide students with a safe, supportive educational environment that is free from discrimination, intimidation, taunting, harassment and bullying. DASA 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, or sex.

More information on the Dignity for All Students Act can be found in the Dignity for All Students act brochure (see link at bottom of page) or visit The State Education Department's Dignity Act home page
