Dignity for All Students Act
DASA 1020 is a six (6) hour, face-to-face class that satisfies the seventh state-mandated workshop required for NYS teacher certification. Training will address the social patterns of harassment, bullying and discrimination, marginalization and micro-aggressions, including but not limited to those acts based on a person's actual or perceived race, color, weight, national origin, ethnic group, religion, religious practice, disability, sexual orientation, gender or sex. The training will address these issues from a proactive - rather than a reactive - position and present the "goal" as creating an affirming educational environment for all students through addressing school culture and climate. It will also cover the identification and mitigation of harassment, bullying and discrimination; and strategies for effectively addressing problems of exclusion, bias and aggression in educational settings.
