The new statute requires school districts to protect children against bullying. Specifically, it requires schools to deal with bullying based upon a child’s sexual orientation or weight.
Schools are now responsible for guarding children against discrimination and harassment related to both ethnicity and disability. The DIGNITY FOR ALL STUDENTS ACT was signed into law by Governor David Paterson on September 8, 2010. This statute, which provides protection for trans-gender students, is one of the first state statutes of this type.
Codes Of Conduct
The effect of the new statute is to cause school districts to amend their codes of student conduct. Guidelines must also be established for school employees. The school districts will have to create employee sensitivity programs to deal with the new requirements.
