The Dignity for All Students Act (DASA) was enacted to provide students with a safe, supportive educational environment free from discrimination, harassment and bullying. In accordance with DASA, Queensbury schools condemn and strictly prohibit all forms of discrimination, harassment and bullying.

Most recently, Queensbury High School launched a safety messaging system that allows students to anonymously report instances of bullying via text message.
