Harassment, Bullying, Cyberbullying, and Discrimination in Schools: Prevention and Intervention Certification Training
New York State’s Dignity for All Student’s Act (Dignity Act) took effect on July 1, 2012 and was amended, effective July 1, 2013 to provide NYS public elementary and secondary school students with a safe, supportive environment free from discrimination, intimidation, taunting, harassment, and bullying on school property, a school bus, and/or at a school function.
Completion of this 6-hour course meets the requirement for certification/licensure under the Dignity Act (§14(5) of Chapter 102 of the Laws of 2012). St. Lawrence University’s Education Department is an approved NYSED provider. The training pro-actively addresses the social patterns of harassment, bullying and discrimination .
