Red Hook Central School District - Dignity for All Students Act (DASA)
Simple Language Version
What is DASA?
The Dignity for All Students Act was established with the broad legislative intent to provide a school environment free of discrimination and harassment.
Prohibits harassment of students on school property or at school functions, and designates many forms of bullying as unlawful discrimination.
Addressing Bullying is a Balancing Act
Our Goals are:
To teach students that certain speech is inappropriate for school while teaching them respect for the First Amendment.
To respect the legitimacy of students’ privacy, opinions, and ideas while creating a safe school environment for everyone.
To establish high, but realistic, expectations for young people.
