We proudly announce that the Ichabod Crane Central School District received the “2021 School Safety Excellence Award” for the third year in a row from Utica National Insurance Group. Also for the third year in a row, the district received the award at the Titanium with Honors level. This annual honor recognizes school districts who go above and beyond with their safety efforts for students, staff & visitors.

Utica National’s School Safety Excellence Award 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 with their own transportation, schools with contract transportation, and BOCES are evaluated. Categories covered include bullying prevention programs, playground safety and other areas, and are measured using specific, quantifiable surveys.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, there was, unfortunately, no award ceremony this year but that in no way diminishes our pride in receiving this award again! The safety of everyone in our buildings is now more important than ever during these times and we take pride in having our efforts recognized.
