NYSUT's Rochester Regional Office is pleased to offer a free professional development seminar for educators examining harassment, discrimination and bullying as it relates to the provisions of the Dignity for All Students Act (DASA).

Dignity Act (DASA): Training in Harassment, Bullying, Cyberbullying and Discrimination in Schools: Prevention & Intervention
Wednesday, August 14. 9:00-4:00 p.m.

The Dignity Act maintains that it is the policy of the State of New York to afford all students in public schools an environment free of discrimination and harassment (Education Law 10). This interactive and discussion-based program examines harassment, discrimination and bullying as it relates to, but is not limited to, those acts based on a person's actual or perceived race, color, weight, national origin, gender or sex. Participants will engage in authentic conversations and reflections about harassment, discrimination and bullying as well as explore the impact of social constructs in their personal and professional lives. This training fulfills the state requirements for six clock hours of coursework or training in the Dignity Act in accordance with Article 2 Sections 10-18 of the Education Law. The Dignity Act training does not count towards CTLE hours.


LOCATION: NYSUT Rochester Regional Office, 30 N. Union St, 1st Floor Conference Center, Rochester, NY 14607.

This workshop is offered at no cost to NYSUT members.
