Ecke took down the flags Thursday after receiving a letter from high school Principal Michael Moran stating that she could face disciplinary action for failing to comply with the directive, said Kilmnick.

“That is discrimination. That is a violation of the Dignity for All Students Act of New York,” Kilmnick said at a news conference Tuesday.
The state law seeks to provide public school students with “a safe and supportive environment free from discrimination, intimidation, taunting, harassment, and bullying” on school property, according to the dignity act.
