A Fresh Approach To Learning


Our Latest News


Emergencies in schools must be addressed in an expeditious and effective manner. Schools are at risk of acts of violence, natural, and manmade disasters. To address these threats, the State of New York has enacted the Safe Schools Against Violence in Education (SAVE) law. Project SAVE is a comprehensive planning effort that addresses prevention, response and recovery with respect to a variety of emergencies in schools.


Pursuant to Commissioner’s Regulation Section 155.17(e) (3), a summary of this Plan will be made available for public comment at least 30 days prior to its adoption. We will include representatives of all key School constituents and interested parties in the development and review of this plan. The Plan will be formally adopted by the Board. To ensure student safety, the plan will be considered ‘in effect’ until a full public review can be conducted, and the Plan approved. Follow the link below to review our plan on our website. The public comment hearing will be held September 10, 2021 at 7pm at 6337 Academy Street, Truxton, NY.
