Warrensburg Central School District received the Utica National Insurance Group’s “School Safety Excellence Award” for 2019 at the titanium with honors level. This is the sixteenth consecutive year the district has earned this highest recognition level.  

The Utica National’s School Safety Excellence Award is presented annually and recognizes school districts’ safety efforts in their efforts keep students, staff, faculty, and visitors safe. The program has three levels – titanium, platinum, and gold – in which schools can earn a meritorious distinction by meeting specific criteria to enhance overall safety. Through the program, schools are evaluated on bullying prevention programs, playground safety and several other areas measured by using specific and quantifiable surveys. To take the award a step further and earn honors status, school districts must pro-actively submit documentation of safety upgrades, inspections, certifications, preventive maintenance logs, and more. The bus garage must pass their NYS DOT inspections with a 95% score or higher. 

The award was presented on Tuesday, March 26, at Utica National’s 39th annual school safety seminar held at the Saratoga Hilton/City Center. Warrensburg Superintendent of Schools John Goralski and Business Administrator Cynthia Turcotte accepted the award. In addition to a plaque, the district will receive a check in the amount of $500. Superintendent Goralski stated, “School safety is of utmost importance. I am really proud of our district and team in being pro-active and consistent in our commitment to safety.”
