Dignity for All Students Act (DASA) Training

The Dignity Act requires that all students in New York state public schools are afforded an environment free of discrimination and harassment (Education Law §10).

"To allow DASA training to continue, all approved DASA training providers, and institutions of higher education that include the DASA training in their educator preparation program curricula, may offer the DASA training entirely online during the time period of the state of emergency in New York State for the COVID-19 virus." - New York State Department of Education 

Dignity Act: Training in Harassment, Bullying, Cyberbullying and Discrimination in Schools: Prevention & Intervention is a six-hour interactive program that examines the acts of 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.

In this training, participants will engage in authentic conversations, activities and reflections about harassment, discrimination and bullying as well as exploring the impact of social constructs in their personal and professional lives.

NYSUT’s Education & Learning Trust is an approved provider for prevention and intervention training in harassment, bullying, cyberbullying and discrimination in schools. 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.
