Programs for SUNY Cortland Students
SUNY Cortland provides New York State mandated Identifying and Reporting Child Abuse and Maltreatment/Neglect (CARR) and Safe Schools Against Violence in Education (SAVE) workshops for SUNY Cortland students only.
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 six hours of coursework or training on the social patterns of harassment, bullying, and discrimination. As an approved provider, SUNY Cortland’s training follows a hybrid format, consisting of three hours of online modules culminating in a three 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.
Workshop registration must occur during the regular on-line "pre-registration period" (beginning the week of April 6, 2015) or during the Drop/Add period through the Registrar's Office using myRedDragon.
ALL WORKSHOPS TO BE HELD IN THE EDUCATION BUILDING, ROOMS 1103-1104.
