Dignity for All Students Act
Under The Dignity for All Students Act, all students have the right to be protected from intimidation, harassment, or discrimination based on actual or perceived race, color, weight, national origin, ethnic group, religion or religious practice, sex, gender/gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability, by employees or students on school property or at a school sponsored event, function or activity.
The purpose of this form is to inform the district of an event or series of incidents of intimidation, harassment, and/or discrimination so that we can investigate and take appropriate action. If you are a student who feels unsafe, or the parent of a child that feels that way, fill out this form and speak directly with your Dignity for All Students Act Coordinator (Mr. Woughter) as soon as possible so we can address you concerns.
