Central Valley School District has again earned Utica National Insurance Group’s School Safety Excellence Award. Central Valley is one of 145 school districts and BOCES in New York to receive the 2016 award at the Titanium with Honors level.

Each year, the company recognizes school districts for their efforts as they work to help keep students, staff and visitors safe. Central Valley received the award and a $500 prize presented at Utica National’s 36th annual school safety seminar at the Double Tree Inn, Syracuse, NY.

Although the company insures more than 300 school districts, less than half qualify for the award. The award applauds school districts that go ‘above and beyond’ to provide a safe, healthy and focused culture for learning. It also helps districts focus on a safety program that helps pinpoint potential safety threats before something happens.

“Director of Operations Jim Humphrey and Facilities II Brady Boyd stay on top of safety. Keeping our students, staff and visitors safe is a serious task,” said Superintendent of Schools Rich Hughes.
