Fort Plain Jr./Sr. School Code of Conduct amended to include Dignity Act components

The Fort Plain Central School District Board of Education approved the code of conduct for the Jr. /Sr. High School on Aug. 14, with amendments that reflect the policies in the Dignity for All Students Act that took effect on July 1.

The law seeks to 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.

Under the law, it is now mandatory for staff to report all incidents of bullying. It also requires training programs to help teachers and administrators learn how to deal with bullying once it is reported.

Dignity Act coordinators from Fort Plain attended training on Aug. 7 and received guidance on how simplify the implementation process.

“Like many districts, we take bullying very seriously, and receiving the right training and amending our codes of conduct were very important to us,” said Superintendent Douglas C. Burton.

Dignity Act coordinators in Fort Plain are:

  • Deborah Larrabee: Jr./Sr. High School principal

  • Cathy Brucker: Harry Hoag Elementary principal

Harry Hoag Elementary School is continuing to work on revisions to its code of conduct.
