Programs for SUNY Cortland Students
SUNY Cortland provides New York State mandated Identifying and Reporting Child Abuse and Maltreatment/Neglect (CARR) workshops and Safe Schools Against Violence in Education (SAVE) workshops for SUNY Cortland students only.
Please note that beginning in May 1, 2014, completion of the DASA Training will be a graduation requirement for education majors in all programs of study and at all levels.
Effective Spring 2015, all teacher candidates will be required to complete the DASA/CARR/SAVE workshops prior to student teaching.
The Dignity for All Students Act (DASA) requires that all students applying for certification as of December 31, 2013, complete 6 hours of coursework or training on the social patterns of harassment, bullying, and discrimination. As an approved provider, SUNY Cortland’s training will consist of 3 hours of online modules culminating in a 3 hour face-to-face workshop. The DASA Training is focused on the following major content areas:
- Understanding the intent, components, and operational definitions of the Dignity for All Students Act.
- Developing sensitivity to the experience of specific student populations.
- Understanding how school climate and culture have an impact on student achievement and behavior.
- Understanding bullying, harassment, and discrimination, including indicators, early warning signs, prevention and intervention and how to interact with families of victims and aggressors.
- Understanding diversity and multicultural environments and examining your own biases.
Effective Fall 2014, registration for the DASA/CARR/SAVE workshops can be completed online through the Registrar's Office using myRedDragon.
