What is the Dignity Act?

New York State’s  Dignity for All Students Act (The  Dignity  Act / DASA) seeks to provide the State’s students with a safe and supportive environment free from discrimination, intimidation, taunting, harassment, and bullying on school property, a school bus and/or at a school function.
