The Dignity for All Students Act

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

The Liberty Central School District is committed to providing a positive school environment where all students feel safe and can focus on learning. If you or someone you know has experienced harassment or bullying please contact your building’s Dignity Act Coordinator or use the LCSD Anonymous Alerts reporting system to confidentially report urgent information.

Anonymous Alerts allows students, parents and staff members to submit a report to the appropriate building level administrator directly from an iPhone or iPad, smart phone, tablet or computer. The encrypted information is sent immediately through private messages and images may be attached to the messages.

Message topics include student bullying, depression, family difficulties, drug and alcohol problems, sexual harassment, guns or other weapons in school or unusual student behavior that may warrant immediate attention by school officials or police.
