They are now taking names for the waiting list.
  NYSUT's Rochester RO is offering the course at NO COST to members in our region, but advance registration is required. 
 PLEASE NOTE: For earlier training sessions, some individuals signed up but did not attend and did not notify the Education Learning Trust that they were cancelling. When a member does this, it takes a place away from someone on the waiting list, and it costs the Regional Office for the space that is unfilled. For future trainings, if one of your members does not appear and fails to notify the NYSUT Learning Trust, the regional office intends to bill your local and/or the individual member to recover this cost.

6-hour Dignity Act: Training in Harassment, Bullying, Cyberbullying and Discrimination in Schools: Prevention & Intervention (DASA)

Dignity Act: Training in Harassment, Bullying, Cyberbullying and Discrimination in Schools: Prevention & Intervention
The Dignity Act maintains that it is the policy of the State of New York to afford all students in public schools an environment free of discrimination and harassment (Education Law 10). This interactive and discussion-based program examines harassment, discrimination and bullying as it relates to, but is not limited to, those acts based on a person's actual or perceived race, color, weight, national origin, gender or sex. Participants will engage in authentic conversations and reflections about harassment, discrimination and bullying as well as explore the impact of social constructs in their personal and professional lives. This training fulfills the state requirements for six clock hours of coursework or training in the Dignity Act in accordance with Article 2 Sections 10-18 of the Education Law.

**This Training is offered at NO COST to NYSUT members from the Rochester region.

Photo Collection
Goal - Have each building submit 50 quality photos with HCSTA members in them from 2016-2017 school year.

Here are the specifics:
  • * Photograph member(s) of HCSTA involved in district related things: instruction, coaching, conducting, leading events, participating in functions, organizing a fundraiser, receiving a reward, volunteering, etc.

  • * Please only one photo per event (Ex. 1 photo from March Madness, or 1 from Empty Bowls, or 1 from a particular science lesson)

  • * Name your photo by telling what it is of.

  • * Drop your photo in the shared Google Drive. Each building has their own folder. (You may need to request access first. I will approve any requests by the end of each work day. If that doesn't work, pop an email to Krisann Craney and you will get your personal access to the folder via an email.)

In the works: We are working on a Teachers Sell/Give to Teachers where teachers in our district can give/sell their personal items. We may make a link to a shared document or classroom so it is easier to manage and include photos. If you know of an easy way, please pass it on to Krisann Craney.

Are you aware of something that you think our members would benefit from knowing? This includes great things that our members are doing! Please email Krisann Craney to have it added to our site.
