The Utica National Insurance Group has given Catskill Central School District its highest award for safety excellence, presenting Catskill with its 2021 Titanium-level School Safety Excellence Award. Along with a framed certificate commemorating the District’s safety efforts, Utica National presented Catskill with a $500 award for use in furthering safety in the District.
“Your continued efforts to provide a safe, healthy, and focused culture for learning in 2021 are to be applauded and we’re pleased to be able to present this award to you,” remarked Brian D. Saville, Utica National’s Senior Vice President of the Educational Institutions, in a communication that accompanied the award.
In Utica National’s Safety Excellence Award program, schools can earn meritorious distinction at three levels – gold, platinum, and titanium – by meeting specific criteria to enhance overall school safety. Schools are evaluated in categories such as bullying prevention programs, playground safety, transportation, and other areas using specific, quantifiable surveys.
