The New York State Education Department (NYSED) established a new Dignity for All Students Act (DASA) training requirement, effective December 31, 2013, that applies to individuals seeking any certification.
According to the new requirement, all applicants for certification must participate in a six-hour DASA workshop provided by a NYSED-approved DASA Training Provider. Rockland BOCES is an approved provider.
