Dignity for All Students Act

THE NEW YORK STATE DIGNITY FOR ALL STUDENTS ACT 

The Rome City School District is currently implementing new requirements to protect students and ensure a positive learning experience for your child. New York State signed into legislation a Dignity For All Students Act in September 2010. The goal of the Dignity of All Students Act is to create a safe and supportive school climate where students can learn and focus, rather than fear being discriminated, harassed or bullied.

No student shall be subjected to discrimination based on a person's actual or perceived race, color, weight, national origin, ethnic group, religion, religious practice, disability, sexual orientation, gender, or sex by another student or a school employee on school property or a school function.

This year each school will be planning activities to raise students awareness related to bullying and positive student behaviors. Each school principal will serve as Dignity Act Coordinator for their respective school.

Should you wish to report an incident where you feel your child has been bullied, harassed or discriminated against, please contact the principal at your child's school. If you have questions regarding the equal opportunity and non-discrimination policy, please contact the District Compliance Officers/Director of Employee Relations, Frank Conestabile at 315-338-6532 and Director of Counseling Services, Amanda Jones at 315-338-6518.
