The Dignity for All Students Act on the website seems to mix ‘harassment’, ‘bullying’ and ‘discrimination’. For example this sentence “DASA requires that at least one staff member at every school be trained as a Dignity Act Coordinator to handle issues related to race, color, weight,national origin, ethnic group, religion, religious practice, disability, sexual orientation, gender and sex.” Does this mean that the DASA is only applicable based on these criteria?

A.  Our policy and regulation define what Dignity for All Students is.  Please see the link here: DASA covers those protected areas you mentioned.  In addition, the district has a policy 4420 ANTI-HARASSMENT IN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT.
