Dignity for All Students


As a result of the Dignity Act, the Board of Regents amended Commissioner's Regulation 100.2(c) to include classroom instruction that supports the development of a school environment free of discrimination and harassment, including but not limited to, instruction that raises awareness and sensitivity to discrimination and harassment based on a person’s actual or perceived race, color, weight, national origin, ethnic group, religion, religious practice, disability, sexual orientation, gender, and sex.
