Dignity for All Students Act (Dignity Act) Workshop Spring 2021 Registration Opens

January 31, 2021
 
New York State’s Dignity for All Students Act (Dignity Act) seeks to provide NYS public elementary and secondary school students with a safe, supportive environment free from discrimination, intimidation, taunting, harassment, and bullying on school property, a school bus and/or at a school function.  

The certification training pro-actively addresses the social patterns of harassment, bullying and discrimination. It is carefully designed to provide participants with the knowledge and skills to create and support an affirming educational environment for all students through addressing school culture and climate. It also includes the identification and mitigation of harassment, bullying and discrimination; and strategies for effectively addressing of the problems of exclusion, bias and aggression in educational settings.

The 6-hour certification training consists of two parts: Each of the two parts is a 3-hour online training with accompanying assessment, which must be completed by date indicated on your log in information email. Please aware that log in information for Part 2 of the course will be emailed within two business days of the completion and time verification of Part 1. Both Parts 1 and 2 must be completed no later than April 4, 2021.

The Warner School offers this workshop, administered by Genesee Valley BOCES, twice each academic year-one time in the fall semester and a second time during the spring semester. The Warner School covers the registration fee for students matriculated in a program that leads to NYS certification. 

This workshop is open only to current students and alumni of the Warner School.

Registration for the Spring 2021 DASA workshop will be available after the start of the spring semester.

Upon completion of the workshop, BOCES will upload certificates of completion for students with a TEACH account.
