Dignity for All Students Act (DASA) Training to be Provided at Both SUNY Orange Locations

MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. – SUNY Orange’ Continuing and Professional Education Department, in collaboration with the College’s Education Department, will be offering certification training in the Dignity for All Students Act (DASA) in February at the Middletown campus and in March at the Newburgh campus.

New York State’s DASA is designed to provide the state’s students with a safe and supportive environment free from discrimination, intimidation, taunting, harassment, and bullying; to raise awareness and sensitivity to potential acts of discrimination and/or harassment; and to enable employees to prevent and respond appropriately to incidents of discrimination and harassment.

The program is appropriate for professionals applying for educational certifications or licenses, including but not limited to: guidance counselors; school psychologists; school social workers; school administrators; teachers; teaching assistants and others.

The program consists of one online session and one classroom session for a total of six hours. The online session must be completed in order to attend the classroom session. The Middletown classroom session will be on Feb. 19. The date for the Newburgh classroom session has yet to be determined (contact the CAPE office if interested).
