• Anti-Bullying and Dignity Act (DASA)

        A safe and supportive school climate can prevent bullying. Everyone must work together to create climates where all people are respected and bullying is not acceptable. The best way to address bullying is to stop it before it begins. School and classroom rules should be followed and appropriate behavior should be displayed as outlined in the LCSD Code of Conduct. Parents are asked to closely monitor their children’s social media accounts and activities since cyberbullying is becoming more prevalent. Parents will be contacted by a building administrator if their children are involved in bullying others. Anyone can become an upstander if they witness bullying. Upstanders can make a big difference for someone who is being bullied by reporting what they witness to a trusted adult.

        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.

    • Spreading bad rumors about people
    • Keeping certain people out of a "group"
    • Teasing people in a mean way
    • Getting certain people to "gang up" on others

    Bullying also can happen online or electronically. Cyberbullying is when children or teens bully each other using the Internet, mobile phones or other cyber technology. This can include:
