In July 2010, the Dignity for all Students Act- or DASA- was established to promote a safe and supportive learning environment in all public and charter schools, free from harassment and discrimination from students and adults.
Examples of bullying include, but are not limited to:
- Verbal: Name -calling, teasing, sexual comments, taunting and threatening to cause harm
- Social: Spreading rumors about someone, excluding others on purpose, telling other children not to be friends with someone and embarrassing someone in public.
- Physical: Hitting, punching, shoving, kicking, pinching, spitting, tripping, pushing, taking or breaking someone's property and making mean or rude hand gestures.
