• Dignity for All Students Act
     
    The Dignity for All Student Act (DASA) became effective in New York State on July 1, 2012. DASA provides instruction in civility, citizenship, character education, tolerance, respect for others, and dignity. It combats bullying, harassment and discrimination in public schools and includes awareness and sensitivity in relationships, including individuals of different races, weights, nationalities, ethnicity, religion, mental or physical abilities, sex, sexual orientation, gender identities or expressions.
     
    Hewlett-Woodmere Public Schools is in compliance with DASA and has updated all Codes of Conduct and policies in accordance with regulations. As part of DASA, school districts are required to appoint a staff member at each school building to handle all bullying incidents on school property.
