Dignity for All Students Act (DASA)

 

What is DASA?

DASA is an abbreviation for the Dignity for All Students Act, which states:

No student shall be subjected to harassment or bullying by employees or students on school property or at a school function; nor shall any student be subjected to discrimination based on a person’s actual or perceived race, color, weight, national origin, ethnic group, religion, religious practice, disability, sexual orientation, gender or sex by school employees or students on school property or at a school function.

To summarize, students are not to be bullied or harassed at school, on school property or at a school sponsored event.
