Dignity for All Students Act
Nassau BOCES is committed to providing a safe, supportive environment free from harassment, bullying and discrimination for all students. The agency encourages the involvement of staff, students, parents and community members in the implementation and reinforcement of the Dignity for All Students Act (DASA). If you believe you, or someone else, has been the target of harassment, bullying, cyber-bullying, and/or discrimination, please complete a DASA Incident Reporting Form (PDF) and return it to a school administrator or Dignity Act Coordinator. All complaints will be treated in a confidential manner. Anonymous reports may limit the district's ability to respond to the complaint. A prompt and thorough investigation will be conducted for all incident reports.
Note: PDF forms can be printed and completed by hand, or filled in electronically and printed or emailed to the Dignity Act coordinator. Use Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat when using fill-in feature of PDF forms. If you do not already have Adobe Acrobat Reader on your computer, you can download it for free from the Adobe website.
For more information, contact the Dignity Act Coordinator in your child’s school. The names, designated school and contact information for each school building’s Dignity Act Coordinators are provided below:
