Transit Middle School DASA Information

The Dignity for All Students Act (DASA) was signed into law on September 13, 2010 and took effect on July 1, 2012.  The Act prohibits harassment and discrimination of students by peers and by school personnel.  In addition, amendments to the regulation (effective July 1, 2013) have added explicit references prohibiting bullying and cyber bullying.  The Act covers all public elementary and secondary aged students and applies to behaviors on school property, in school buildings, on a school bus, as well as school-sponsored events or activities.
