Dignity for All Students Act (DASA) Workshop: Harassment, Bullying, Cyberbullying and Discrimination in Schools, Prevention & Intervention
Students: Please read the entirety of this page for important instructions.
Dignity for All Students (DASA) Workshops. This course will consist of two parts, part 1 which is a 3 hour on-line series of modules and part 2 which is a 3 hour in-person component. Students will complete the on-line modules via blackboard first and will follow up with the 3 hour in person workshop. This course DOES meet the 6 hour NYS and NYC requirements. Please be advised, it can take up to 3 weeks after completing the workshop for the results to be uploaded to the Teach Portal.
This coursework will address the social patterns of harassment, bullying and discrimination, marginalization and micro aggressions, including but not limited to, those acts based on a person’s actual or perceived race, color, weight, national origin, ethnic group, religion, religious practice, disability, sexual orientation, gender or sex. This training will address these issues from a proactive-rather than a reactive-position and present the “goal” as creating an affirming educational environment for all students through addressing school culture and climate. It will also cover the identification and mitigation of harassment, bullying and discrimination; and strategies for effectively addressing problems of exclusion, bias and aggression in educational settings.
