• New York State’s Dignity for All Students Act (The Dignity Act) is intended to provide students in public schools an educational environment free from discrimination and harassment.  It protects against all forms of harassment, particularly those based on a student’s actual or perceived race, color, weight, national origin, ethnic group, religion, religious practice, disability, sexual orientation, gender or sex. 

    To provide assistance with the Dignity for all Students Act, each building has designated a “Dignity Act Coordinator.”  Building Coordinators serve as the information source and liaison for each building with regard to the implementation of the legislation.    For additional information regarding the Dignity Act, please contact your child’s building level Dignity Act Coordinator.
