DASA Simple Language

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.
