New York: DASA Dignity for All Students Act
#1 Premiere Continuing Education hosts this course on behalf of
Abuse Prevention Associates (DASA Provider ID: 0188).
This coursework provides school professionals with the appropriate tools to address social patterns of harassment, intimidation, discrimination, and marginalization, including, but not limited to, acts based on race, color, weight, national origin, ethnic group, religion, religious practice, disability, sexual orientation, gender or sex. The Dignity Act requires, among other things, that school districts create policies and guidelines that will be used in school training programs to mitigate the development of discrimination or harassment and to allow employees to prevent and respond to these behaviors. The Dignity Act states that it is the policy of New York State to offer all public-school students an environment free from discrimination and harassment. This course encourages school professionals to act for the welfare of the entire school community, protecting the student population through existing legal provisions that create an appropriate educational environment for all students by addressing culture and school climate.
