• Dignity for All Students Act (DASA)

    • The goal of the Dignity for All Students Act (DASA) is to create a safe and supportive school climate where students can learn and focus, rather than fear being discriminated against and/or verbally and/or physically harassed. All public elementary and secondary school students have the right to attend school in a safe, welcoming, considerate, and caring environment.
