DASA:  The Dignity for All Students Act.NYS DASA Emblem
The Dignity for All Students Act, passed in 2013, is intended to help provide public school students with a safe environment free of harassment, discrimination, and bullying in school environments and school functions.  Harassment and bullying mean the creation of a hostile environment by conduct or by threats, intimidation, or abuse. Acts of harassment and bullying include, but are not limited to, those acts based on a person's actual or perceived race, color, weight, national origin, ethnic group, religion, religious practice, disability, sexual orientation, gender, or sex.  Bullying is defined as an unwanted, aggressive behavior that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the  potential to be repeated, over time. This can include cyber bullying.
