Dignity for All Students Act
The Bayport-Blue Point School District fosters an
educational setting where all students are treated with respect and dignity. In accordance with the Dignity for All
Students Act (DASA), administrators, teachers, staff members and students have
continued to address these issues with an increased focus and education. DASA awareness occurs throughout the school
year through assemblies, classroom visits, character education programs and an
emphasis in the guidance counselors and psychologists’ offices.
Definition of DASA:
DASA states that no student should be subjected to
harassment or discrimination by employees or students on school property or at
a school function. No student shall be subjected
to discrimination based on his/her actual or perceived race, color, national
origin, ethnic group, religion, religious practice, disability weight (or other
physical features), sexual orientation, gender identity or biological sex.
