Dignity for All Students Act (DASA)

The state’s Dignity for All Students Act requires each school district to provide a safe, supportive, educational environment that is free from discrimination, intimidation, taunting, harassment and bullying.  The law, combined with policies already in place in the Jordan-Elbridge Central School District, promotes civility, mutual respect, citizenship, character, tolerance, honesty and integrity. The district is committed to providing an environment that promotes these principles for all students, staff and parents. As such, our policies condemn and prohibit all forms of discrimination, such as harassment, hazing and bullying on school grounds, on school buses, at school bus stops and at all school-sponsored activities, programs and events.

Our schools cannot effectively battle bullying if incidents are not reported. The district encourages students, staff members and parents to report bullying – including cyberbullying – to the appropriate Dignity Act coordinator.
