Report Incidents of Racism in Schools

Under the Dignity Act, schools must “provide the State’s public elementary and secondary school students with a safe and supportive environment free from discrimination, intimidation, taunting, harassment, and bullying on school property, a school bus, and/or at a school function,” as well as collecting and reporting data.
