The Catholic Schools of Broome County consider safety to be one of our primary responsibilities.
There are many actions that are taken regularly to ensure a safe and secure environment for students, staff and visitors. Our buildings are examined regularly to be sure all safety doors, cameras and other mechanisms are working properly. We employ a School Resource Officer (SRO) who maintains a prominent presence in our buildings and develops positive relationships with students. Faculty, staff and students have all participated in safety training. Each school maintains a safety plan which is also shared with local law enforcement. Drills and other safety checks are held regularly to assure compliance with school protocol.
