Dignity for All Students Act

Monroe 2–Orleans BOCES is committed to providing an educational and working environment that promotes respect, dignity and equality. We recognize that discrimination, such as harassment, hazing and bullying is detrimental to student learning and achievement. Such behavior affects not only the students who are its targets but also those individuals who participate and witness such acts. If you have been the target of such behavior or know of someone who is the target, you are encouraged to speak with your teacher, principal or program supervisor to share your concern. In addition, the following Dignity Act Coordinators are available to help.
