Dignity For All Students Act (DASA)
The North Bellmore School District is committed to providing a safe, supportive environment free from harassment, bullying, intimidation and discrimination for all students. The District encourages the involvement of staff, students, parents and community members in the implementation and reinforcement of the Dignity for All Students Act (DASA).
If you believe you, or someone else, has been the target of harassment, bullying, cyber-bullying, and/or discrimination, please use the North Bellmore DASA Incident Complaint Form to report all allegations to the appropriate Dignity Act Coordinator, or building principal. All complaints will be treated in a confidential manner. A prompt and thorough investigation will be conducted for all incident reports. Anonymous reports may limit the district’s ability to respond to the complaint.
