Dignity for All Students Act (DASA)

Dignity for All Students Act (DASA)

Under the Dignity for All Students Act (DASA), preparation is needed so that anyone applying for administrative or supervisory service, classroom teaching service, or school service certificate or license on or after January 1, 2014, shall have completed at least six clock hours of coursework or training in Harassment, Bullying, and Discrimination Prevention and Intervention.

Five key components are covered in this course to prepare educational professionals for harassment, bullying and discrimination prevention and intervention:

  1. Understanding the intent components and operational definitions of the Dignity Act.
  2. Developing sensitivity to the experience of specific student populations.
  3. Understanding how school climate and culture have an impact on student achievement and behavior.
  4. Understanding bullying, harassment and discrimination, including indicators, early warning signs, prevention and intervention, and how to interact with families of victims and aggressors.
  5. Understanding diversity and multicultural environments and examining your own biases.
